    The 5 sisters of Kintail

    Five Sisters

    Our lodge was in the shadow of one of these. Simply amazing to be outside and night, full moon (New Years Eve) and look up and see its moonlit presence!

    Loch Duich New Years Day

    New Years, 2001-2002 I stayed a stone's throw from the shores of this Loch (Loch Duich), in a Victorian hunting lodge with some new Scottish friends. I had a fabulous time with them all, and in one week 14 adults went through a 10 cases of wine!

    Secret Caves - Access Only At Low Tide

    by scotlandscotour Written Jul 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only accessible at low tide - this is fun!

    Rekindle the spirit of adventure - clamber over sea polished boulders and scramble close to the crashing Atlantic waves as you make your way into Spar Cave.

    Nature's limestone sculptures are your reward for being adventurous. Plus its fun!

    Do check the tides and weather forcast first!

    For details on where this secret cave is - contact me.

    Elgol - Loch Coruisk - Caves and Marble

    by scotlandscotour Written Mar 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    see also photos by globetrott of Loch Coruisk and views across water to the Cuillin Mountains.

    Allow atleast 2 hours for a detour down this road to explore the coastline around Elgol.

    You will discover your childhood.

    Facilities at Elgol include a wee shop, cafe and public toilets. Not so unknown any more.
    Take lots of camera film. On sunny says, plan to not return!

    Old man of Storr

    Sailing up the East Coast of Skye was fantastic. The landskape was like out of the movie "Lord of the Rings"
    A little North of Poretree there is this standing rock called Old man of Storr. A natural Obelisk about 50m high.

    coming into Glen Shiel

    as I was jetlagged, I slept much of the way from Aberdeen to Glen Shiel. I woke up in time to see this.

    Sgurr Mhairi

    Sgurr  Mhairi

    Sgurr means peak or pinnacle, I believe.

    I think the mountain is called Glamaig, and the peak is the Sgurr Mhairi?

    It overlooks Loch Sligachan and the Narrows of Raasay to the island of Raasay.
