Western Scottish Highlands

Left Edinburgh early Monday morning en route to the Isle of Skye, via
a windy route around the western highlands of Scotland. It's
basically impossible to take a bad picture here; nothing but gorgeous
vistas in every direction you look.

The castle pictured below is Eilean Donan, a former Mackenzie clan
stronghold that was at times in the 16th-17th centuries maintained by
constables from the Macauleys (ancestor shoutout). Not only one of the
most photographed in all of Scotland, it also served as a set for the
horrible 80s B-movie The Highlander.
