Christmas Bonus: ‘Showtime’ – Sunrise on the Isle of Skye

Episode 22 (Season 2 Bonus): ‘Showtime’

Thousands of people visit the Isle of Skye every year, but luckily there is a way to escape the crowds and have even the island’s most famous spots almost to yourself – it’s all about timing.

‘Showtime’ is a story about a trip to the Isle of Skye in winter. We’re getting up well before the crack of dawn and set out to visit one of the most beautiful places on the Isle of Skye. Icy roads, steep inclines and tired eyes won’t keep us from this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

This is actually a story I initially shared with my Patreon subscribers last summer. If you like it and would like to hear more stories like it between seasons, join my Patreon here.
