Bonnie Scotland - Trip Review - Part 3

Kyle of Lochalsh is the gateway to the Isle of Sye on the west coast of Scotland. We spent 5 days in this area and did a one day tour of the Isle of Sye.

    Thanks! I did have a great trip to Scotland, but I have also had a great trip to Kilarney as well. I guess I need to get those photos on the blog! ha! Kilarney is a beautiful area, and I enjoyed visiting Ross Castle, Kilareny Natinal park, walking the Gap of Dunloe, and Kilareny itself. I would love to go back.
