Ferry Across And Seafood Dinner At Isle Of Skye

ISLE OF SKYE...

We have to make it to the ferry terminal to cross over to the Isle of Skye before 4.30pm.  Actually there are two options to cross over to the isle aka island, one is by using the ferry from Mallaig and another is by using the Skye bridge which we did the next day.  Aaron wanted us to try the ferry first and so we did.  The ferry catered for cars too, (just like Penang) and it took around 30 minutes to cross over to the Isle of Skye. 
Ferrying us across... 
As we sailed along... 
On the ferry... indoor and outdoor... 
Of course, I was indoor... the guys are more adventurous...
They took these pictures.... so beautiful... 
Nearing the Isle of Skye... 


Isle of Skye is a popular resort for both locals and tourists far and near.  It is known for its rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles.  Portree is the name of the town, a base for exploring the island and it features harbourside pubs and boutiques.  But first.... before it turned dark, actually it did turn dark by 5pm, we were huddled into a restaurant for our dinner, we were super hungry by then!

Cuchullin Restaurant it is called.... a 16th century lodge which serves fresh and local seafood and meat.  Actually we did not do any homework on this, we just randomly entered into one...

I sat beside the giant lobster at the window... 
Ordered seafood pasta... 
Must try their lobsters... not the one by the window though... 
Seafood platter.. consisting of fresh scallops, fish, mussels... 
I like the scallops... so big and juicy!
Part of our order...
These too.... 
Actually not a lot... everything was wiped off clean... 
And we must not leave the place without this below... 
Ice cream with Moist Chocolate Cake or was it Brownie.. 
And our meal... before and after...
And the next hassle...
Finding our AirBnB in the dark up the mountains!

  3. A beautiful blue journey. And the food looks divine! I hope you managed to ignore that lobster perched beside you; no guilt for eating his brother!
