Photographer's Note

The Picture shows the Sligachan Hotel at the Isle of Skye. We was on a trip to the West Coast of Skye. The original Sligachan Inn was situated half a mile from its present location, nearer the head of the Loch on the site of a natural ford, the name Sligachan (pronounced "Slig-a-han") is Gaelic for small shells, and so the spot became known as "the shelly place". Re-located around 1830, a new inn was built on the present site.

The land surrounding the Hotel is still completely unspoiled and remains much as it would have been in the 1800's, although fortunately access to Sligachan by road has improved greatly! The geological features around Sligachan are unique with the rounded Red Cuillin to one side, and the sharper peaks of the Black Cuillin to the other.
