Highland Tour - Day 4

Today was our last day on the Isle of Skye. We left Portree heading south on A87. Hamish made a few photo stops, including the Three Sisters at Glencoe, and then headed over Skye Bridge to return to the Scottish main land. Returning to mainland Scotland at Kyle of Lochalsh, we continued on A87 to Dornie and stopped to tour Eilean Donan Castle. After the castle, we made a quick stop to see some Highland cattle. A few hours later, we returned in the rain to Edinburgh Airport. We caught our Sky Europe flight to Krakow and were very impressed by a so-called budget airline. Our plane, a brand new 737-700, had very comfortable leather seats with enough legroom for a 6-foot passenger. That is more than I can say for Continental or Northwest. Anyway, we arrived in Krakow at 1 AM and headed thru passport control to baggage claim to pick up our bags. We were picked up by taxi with a driver who spoke little English and he took us to the apartment we had rented for the week in the Krakow city center. We had some confusion reaching our contact, but our taxi driver eventually called them for us. Luckily, they were in the same building, so they immediately let us in and showed us our apartment. By about 3 AM, we were finally able to call it a day. Walked = 8.8 miles.
