Summer on Skye: Inverness to Kyle Train

I've had a few changes recently and I'm spending the summer on the Isle of Skye to refocus, work  and have some happy times, so no doubt I'll be posting a lot of photos here. The weather changes so rapidly here, it's wild out there one minute with unrelenting winds, pounding rain and you're freezing cold, the next it's too hot with bright sunshine and I'm getting sunburnt watching a gorgeous sunset and it's not called 'The Misty Isle' for nothing.

Here's a few photos from my journey from Chinley to Uig, which took a walk, bus, walk, 3 hour delayed plane, taxi, train, walk, bus and final car journey to get here! These photos were taken from the train from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh and as you can see the windows were really dirty but the views were breathtakingly beautiful. {I quite like the marks the dirt makes, it enhances that inside/outside feeling and makes them look quite painterly}

 Just what you need at a train station- a boat! Thanks Stromeferry!

 Love the two people beachcombing in red jackets, gives a great sense of scale

And here's a little series of opposite window photos:
 It's so exhilarating seeing wild, remote landscapes roll by with little human impact {apart from the trainline!}

What have you seen from train windows lately?
