Skye is a large and varied island known mostly for the magnificent Black Cuillins - the finest mountain range in the British Isles. One of the problems in visiting Skye is finding the right weather - you are more than likely to need an umbrella! The photographs here were mostly taken on a fine November day sandwiched between days of heavy rain, and even then they were taken between showers! Even in the bad weather the Isle of Skye ia a joy but when it is fine, it's simply stunning!
On a trip up to the Highlands from England the first real sense of being in the mountains comes when you climb up to Rannoch Moor and then make the exciting descent of the Pass of Glencoe. Here is the first magnificent taste of things to come as you venture further north. Off course you might also encounter the famous Scottish weather here for the first time but, no matter, the scenery is still superb.
From Glencoe up to the far north of the Scotland, the West Coast amazes at every turn with a huge variety of scenery from magnificent lochs, stunning mountains and, of course, with the sea never too far away. Most of the photographs here are from the area between Loch Linnhe, just north of Glencoe up to Gairloch but, of course, there is much more to explore. Enjoy these for the time being.
