|Staffin Post Office, Skye|
….Where to start...what to put in and what to leave out?
My emphasis this time was to get to know Skye a little better in my artistic exploration of the Western Isles….
So I booked myself in at Dun Flodigarry hostel , not really knowing what I would find…!
Thank you Gavin and Bryan….you’ve a great place! and what a marvellous view! Didn’t see the mountains across the Sound for a week, but THEN……!!!!!
The weather turned a bit, but often that brings wonderful skies , so that was good! I don’t think I’ll ever forget the interesting experience of my attempt to paint Staffin Post Office!
A new place to explore involves working out bus timetables , finding somewhere to hole up while dodging the weather and hopefully do some sketching , oh and try to do as much work as possible while enjoying a stunning location, in an effort to share all that beauty with a few onlookers , perhaps?
Then it was on to my regular pitch at Berneray Hostel but even this part of my expedition came up with some exciting variations…!
Moving on, I stayed a couple of nights at the excellent Cowshed Boutique Hostel in Uig...a chance to catch up on some more work and attend to my growing website maybe? I didn’t manage much sketching there...just one or two doodles. But this is another place where I find I can feel very happily ensconced, so must bookmark it for hopefully a longer sojourn another time!
Hmmm...maybe I’m veering towards the tedious...highlights...and more highlights! Well, there was Tir Nan Og B&B for a special treat - delicious food...stunning views.
Then I found the excellent Eilidh at Coralbox ...what a discovery, and later was treated to a bit of a party around a convivial table at the hostel on my last night...grrrrreat!
