6/9 Tour en route & on the Isle of Skye.

1 Our tartan clad tour guide.
2 Loch Ness & Urquhart Castle. Nessie pictured but uncapturable on an iPhone sensor. There’s actually a gentleman that’s camped out on a beach there for 25 years waiting to spot it.
3 Eilean Donan castle at low tide.
4 One of the misty peaks of the black Cuillin mountain range.
5 Portree, the largest town on Skye. Traditional style 🐟 & 🍟 down by the harbor for lunch.
6 Kilt Rock overlook with a cheesing Allison.
7 The treacherous drive up to Quiraing.
8 The perfect way to give cheers to a great day trip–with a sip of single malt Glen Moray.

The Black Cuillin by Andrew Whitham

Elgol, Skye

The winding road south from Broadford, through Torrin, along the shores of Loch Slapin becomes ever steeper, and more winding as you approach the fishing village of Elgol. The location is stunning, with views across Loch Scavaig to the spectacular Black Cuillins. From here boat trips leave to Loch Coruisk, in the heart of the Cullin range.
