Goodness, Wednesday again, where has the time gone. Hope you all had a lovely Easter and now can't face chocolate for weeks!

We had a lovely time, Alasdairs mother has a house up in Skye to which we went to on Friday. It was the first time we had been up since it had be renovated and whilst it wasn't how I would have done it - it was perfectly adequate for the weekend.

Thankfully the weather was kind to us as believe me there is nothing to do up there when it is raining!

We took Struan to his namesake
The hamlet of Struan only has a population of around 300 and it is a 'one blink and you will miss it kind of town' but a beautiful setting.

Struan was keen to climb a mountain so on Monday we decided to go up the 'Old Man of Stor' on the Trotternish peninsula. The view, because of the weather, was spectacular overlooking the sound of Raasay.

Struan and Alasdair managed up the 719 metres but as the last bit was very steep and rough I stayed back with Hamish.
We were all pretty tired but felt a great sense of pride at managing the climb!

It really is a stunning part of the world and if you get the weather in your favour there is nothing better.

Hugs to you all
