Well what weather to visit Skye. It was so hot and clear blue skies all the way. I went by Applecross to visit a pal had a great lunch fresh smoked salmon and passed the Torridon and Applecross hills looking incredible.
The roads were so busy everyone it seems has a camper-van and on the tight roads it was scary at times. Add to that the convoy of posh cars tearing up the road all on a mission?
I was glad to get to Skye in one piece.

I met so many who had been on the ridge I knew it would be warm and many were finding it hard going due to the heat.
I am staying in Broadford and away early tomorrow. It’s another hot day planned so I need to be careful with the sun.
The usual tips apply
Drink carry plenty of water. A lot more than usual. I try to drink as much as I can before I go get hydrated.
Use sunscreen and cover up. Use a hat !
It’s so easy to damage your skin by to much sun. Many of us are suffering from this due to not looking after yourself with sunscreen.
Heat exhaustion is not funny so be careful enjoy the weather but take it easy
I find early starts help as you are up high when the sun is at its hottest hopefully with a breeze.
It’s great to enjoy some good weather at last.
