Day 2: Saturday
On Saturday, we thought it was high time for the kids to get to do some kid stuff. We drove a few minutes to look at Duncraig Castle. Although it is impressive from sea, Duncraig Castle is not really worth a tour in my opinion as it is not very castley. In fact, it was sold for half a million pounds not so long ago and now is for hire for events and is a B&B. Go figure.
So, we then headed back into Plockton for a Seal Boat Tour by Calum. We were told Calum was a memorable host, and indeed he was! Calum only charges you if you actually see seals, so we were confident that we would see seals. I highly recommend this tour. Besides seeing seals and the kids getting to drive the boat, the other note-worthy event was me dropping my new camera. The display immediately broke. Seriously, what am I going to do with myself? I was devastated and pouted about it for a while.
We then decided to go to Craig Highland Farm. What a delightful surprise! The scenery was amazing, and the animals were more than friendly. Plus, as an added bonus, my camera magically started working again. I will go ahead and credit the Lord and His goodness for fixing it. He is so kind.
We ate lunch at Plockton Hotel- another great treat! We had fish and chips, hot prawns, and fried scampi. Delicious and all well under 10 GBP. Plus, Plockton Hotel offered public restrooms and wireless internet for a pound. A good meal and great customer service ranks them high in my book.
After Luke’s nap, we headed back out to Eilean Donan. The day had gotten increasingly warmer and clearer, so I was feeling itchy to get out there again and actually tour the castle and enjoy the grounds. I was glad we did- such a lovely site.
As you can see, I just couldn’t quit taking pictures.
