Photographer's Note

We went to the Isle of Skye again in October. This time we stayed at Elgol, which is at the end of a 15mile single track road. We rented a cottage overlooking the little harbour on Loch Scavaig, which you see here.

This view is popular with photographers, but if you’re not sure what the weather is going to be, that 15 miles and back again on a single track road can be a looong way. We used to watch from the cottage window as several photographers arrived each evening for the hoped-for sunset. All we had to do was walk 100m.

This was taken after the sun had set, while sitting on the rocks watching the splashing of the waves. The mountains in the background are the famous Cuillin Hills.

If you click the map link (right) I marked where I was sitting to take the photo. Zoom in and move slightly SE and you will see where we were staying.
