Caldey Island – Wales

We recently spent a week in Tenby, Wales, a part of the country that I have never previously visited.  As the weather was particularly good it seemed like a wise idea to take a boat trip to Caldey Island.  One of Britain’s Holy Islands, it is inhabited by Cisterian Monks who have been resident since 1926.  The monks who farm the island are self sufficient  and produce and sell  an array of items including chocolate, perfumes and toiletries.  Transferring between boat and island by amphibious landing craft was a mode of disembarkation I have never experienced before!

The Isle of Skye – Neist Point and The Old Man of Storr

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Isle of Skye for the very first time.  Staying for six days in Ardvasar at it’s southern end, I managed to cover most of the Island apart from the Waternish peninsula.  This will have to wait for my next trip which is most certainly guaranteed.  The Isle of Skye is a simply breathtaking with dramatic scenery around every corner.  The weather was typically Scottish – numerous showers with the odd burst of very welcome sunshine.  My camera had a particularly busy time; having reviewed many gigabytes of photographs I have had to categorise my photographs and they will be spread over a number of posts which will follow in due course.  However, for the time being enjoy Neist and one of my favourite places ‘The Old man of Storr’
