Today I wanted to share some pics from my visit to Ireland last week! We were so lucky with the weather—it was sunny for almost the entirety of our four-day trip—and everything was a lush green and in full bloom.

For those of you who don’t know, Isle of Skye is an island off the northwest coast of Scotland and is the largest island in the Inner Hebrides archipelago. I booked a two-day tour with International Student Tours Scotland, which I highly recommend (it’s the same tour group with whom I went to the Glenfinnan Viaduct in the Scottish Highlands and Dunnottar Castle on the east coast). Below you can read all about what we did and where we went, as well as see some of my photos. But it goes without saying that pictures (especially phone pics) do not do this beautiful place justice!
