Day Two: Isle of Skye: Steeped in a rich and turbulent history, full of romance and rebellion, the ancient Isle of Skye isn't a place, its an intoxication.

An experience of life affirming proportions is guaranteed.

Into Fort Augustus and then on to Glen Affric and the last remnants of the ancient, great Forest of Caledon.
