Neist Point and Goodbye to Skye

After the hike to the Storr in the morning we proceeded to the west coast of Skye in order to reach Neist Point, a very famous scenic view of the ocean with the western Hebrides islands from a promontory ad an old lighthouse. Neist Point is a must-see place of Skye, as you easily understand from following pictures. We went there for admire the panorama from the top of the promontory but I fell in love with the cliffs surround it. I’ve never been in Iceland, but I saw many photos of some Icelandic cliffs and the one on the left side of the promontory remembered some of them.
So, this was our last day in Isle of Skye, the day after we left this unforgettable island to reach Oban and the southern Hebrides.
It was so sad to leave Skye for all the places we have visited and for the warm and friendly reception of the island’s people as well.
But we promised to each other to come back sooner or later, because we have to visit much more of this unforgettable place – the Fairy Pools, the Cuillin Hills, The Kilt Rock for example.
The last pictures have been taken during our journey to Oban and Tarbert.
In the early morning the sea level was higher than before so we had the chance to appreciate the amazing reflection of the mountains on the Loch Ainort.
It was like a farewell gift.
Goodbye Skye.
Maybe i’ll see you in another life if this one wasn’t enough.
