The Black Cuillins

For our second hike in Skye, we ventured into the black Cuillins, a rugged range on the north side of Skye.

We picnicked in the shadows of the mountains, squinting to see climbers on the rocky peaks around us.

On the way back, we came across a true Highlands celebrity:

*Gorgeous* scenery! And what an adorable cow! (Well, as long as you stay away from the business ends of those horns!)

fortunately, given that the thing has such Cousin It-like qualities, the horns don't seem to be that a great a threat--more likely, it would trample you without realizing you were even there...

It is very Cousin-It-like!
