You also see the ruins of Kelso Abbey, a reminder of the many ancient conflicts between Scotland and England.  Continuing South, you cross the border and travel to Alnwick Castle, an immense fortification that has stood strong for nearly a millennium.  It was originally built to assert Norman rule over newly conquered lands. But more recently Alnwick Castle and its perfectly manicured gardens have found fame as one of the settings for the fictional Hogwarts school in the Harry Potter movie series.  Book lovers should take the opportunity to explore one of the largest and most impressive second-hand book shops in Britain.  After around three hours at Alnwick, you travel north along the Northumberland Coast, one of the UK’s most outstanding areas of natural beauty.

You can go inside ‘the most photographed castle in Scotland’ or simply enjoy the astounding views.  And now, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for.  Because it’s over the sea and onto the Isle of Skye.  You travel up the island’s east coast through the stunning Red Cuillin Mountains to Sligachan, where you stop for a photo of the clear mountain waters.  Arriving in the town of Portree, you have free time to grab a bite to eat at one of the many delightful local restaurants.  After you’ve filled your belly, you explore some of the most famous scenery of the island at the Trotternish Peninsula. The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the Quiraing are all unforgettably beautiful.  You venture to Kyleakin for refreshments and a chance to view the dramatic ruin Castle Moil or the Skye Bridge and Eilean Ban.  Travelling over the bridge, you journey back to Inverness.
