Sailing around the Isle of Skye: Edinburgh - Stirling
We arrived at Edinburgh Airport at about 5 p.m. English was all around - conversations, newspapers, TV, billboards, etc. There were only two known letters for me - the “WC” in the toilet sign. I felt some kind of cultural shock for the first minute. It was not a bad feeling, it was just seeing a new world previously unknown to me. The boat was waiting for us on the island, so our plan was to go to Skye through Northwest Scotland. None of us had seen the Scottish mountains and lochs. The car we had rented was near to the airport. After a half an hour, we were on our way sitting in the comfortable van with the wheel on the RIGHT side! Don't wonder, it’s very unusual for Russians. Our people were used to finding a wheel on the left side of their vehicles. This habit is very old. I guess it came when Henry Ford invented his first automobile. We didn't get to see Edinburgh on our first day in Scotland, because we decided to go to Stirling. We had a little time and had to do one important thing before going to the sea.
