SKYE HIGH: THE QUIRAING AND A DOG CALLED MACK

19th September, 2015

Well it's the second day hill climbing and Greg, Jonah's friend and colleague, has invited us for tea/coffee at his bed and breakfast in Staffin which he runs with his wife Sue. Jonah collects me from The Roseville Hotel and we are on our way. Greg and Sue's B&B is lovely overlooking the Atlantic by Staffin Bay. and very welcoming. It's so nice to be invited-thank you Greg and Sue, and by the way this B&B has outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor ( check out achtalean.co.uk 01470562723) and quite right to. After coffee we set off for the Quiraing. Jonah has brought his lovely border collie Mack with him. He is also a Mountain Rescue dog - when the harness goes on he know it's work, but today there is no harness and he is having fun.  He even chased a rabbit although he knows he shouldn't!!

The Quiraing is part of what can be a menacing landscape, that was formed by a series of landslips. The Quiraing itself is still moving and the road that lies below it has to be repaired every year. It is a good example of how wild an Island Skye is-but that is part of it's attraction it's total wildness. As we set off on the footpath into the Quirang I am thinking OK this is a nice path- it's going to be easier today.

Well I could not be more wrong ------------ read the next installment o find out why!!
