Kyle of Lochalsh

Day 11
Today we rode the train to Plockton, a small fishing town on the west coast of Scotland. We stopped at the Plockton Inn restaurant for a fresh seafood lunch. Then we got a taxi ride to the Eilean Donan Castle, which has appeared in a few movies (Highlander and one of the Bond movies). The scenery on the way home from Kyle of Lochalsh was "crackin' good".
We also got to hear a wee bit o' bagpipin'. Ooooh, I almost sound Scottish. This was the favorite castle so far. No pictures taken inside of course, but lots of cool historical items. As the girls were admiring a case of silver flasks and such, we heard Sydney exclaim, "Look, it's a Nintendo DS!" There I saw a silver case the exact size of a Nintendo player. I thought it was hilarious, but maybe you had to be there.
