A beautiful sunrise at 8 am over the mountains of Isle of Skye when our ship reached his destination for today.
The largest town on Skye and the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, Portree.
Portree has a natural harbour fringed by high ground and cliffs. The name of the port Portree might came from "Port Righ" translates as "king´s port". Today the town serves as a centre for tourtists exploring the island of Skye.
Again a lovely day with sunshine and calm warm weather the whole day.
Excursions today:

At 5 pm we passed the famous Kilt Rock. It got its name of the typical kilt fabric pattern made up by basalt columns and dolerite sills. Both have there origin in the time when the Atlantic Ocean started to open.
