August 29 — Skye to Oban

We went to Armadale Castle and the Museum of the Isles at the Clan Donald Centre in Armadale, then took the ferry from Armadale to Mallaig, then drove to Oban on the west coast. On the way, we stopped at the Glenfinnan Monument, Glen Coe, and Dunstaffnage Castle.

The weather was sunny and beautiful while we were at Armadale Castle but started to cloud over when we got to the ferry terminal, then it started to rain. It rained lightly during the ferry crossing, and during the drive to Glenfinnan it rained steadily and sometimes quite heavily. At Glenfinnan the rain started to let up a little. It was misty when we got to Glencoe, then it started to clear somewhat. By the time we got to Dunstaffnage Castle, the sky was clear, blue, and sunny again!
