Highland Scenes


Ok so as promised I thought I’d share some great photo’s of my recent trip to Scotland.  I was based in Glenelg which isn’t far from the route taken to get onto Skye.  The cottage I stayed in looked across to the southern end of Skye and was pretty dramatic.

This panoramic is the view from the cottage.

This was one evening and shows how amazing the light can be – no photo-shop here!

Another evening sky…looking at Skye!

Mornings were equally surprising.

This rainbow lit up the tiny hamlet, it was so amazing and it lasted literally seconds before changing again to dramatic clouds.

My trip to Sandaig – Gavin Maxwell’s Ring Of Bright Water setting. (See my other posts on this subject) You can make out the monument and plaque where the cottage once stood, to the right about 2 thirds up the pic.

A beautiful white beach made from tiny shells and crystal clear waters at Sandaig.  Sat here for hours in the total silence – apart from the waves!

Evening sun at Sandaig through the grasses – could have stayed all night!

A collection of shells from the site – the tiny one at the front is a Groatie Buckie and is a rare find.  I’ve been to Sandaig 4 times now and this was the only time I spotted one!

A view of Skye road bridge – linking mainland Scotland to the Isle of Skye!

This view was a reward for a 9 mile hike through forests and a wooded coastal route.

Hope you liked my pics!
