Luckily the workers at Uig Hotel (very cute place with a good restaurant) were very kind and basically found us the last bed in the Isle of Skye. Also by luck, everything in Skye is close together. We only had to make a 20 minute trip to our saving grace b&b in Edinbane. It ended up working out quite nicely as they had chickens, sheep, ducks, and more in the backyard!Isle of Skye | Scotland GuideIsle of Skye | Scotland GuideTuckered out from our adventure, we meandered down the road to Edinbane Inn on advice from our hosts.
