23 May (Skye continued): There are still plenty of showers around, but the afternoon looks like staying dry. We’ll take the waterproofs, just in case. We’ve walked from the small parking space at Port Gobhlaig many times, but we’ve never explored the lane from Kilmaluag to Connista – let’s try it! We’ll head along the path by the shore to Balmacqueen, then up to the main road and down to the bridge over the Kilmaluag River, whose clear peaty water looks like diluted Guinness… It’s a there-and-back-again walk to Connista – a very quiet one, with wonderful views. And no, we didn’t need the waterproofs.
