The Quiraing Featured

Written by Chris

The Quiraing on Skye is one of the most recognisable locations from the island appearing in dozens of photographs and films.  Decided to have a very early morning start with the aim of getting up there for sunrise for some landscape shots.  Surprisingly at 5am I wasnt alone, and there were probably a dozen photographers dotted around the location.  The distinctive landscape was caused by a massive landslip over 10,000 years ago and is strikingly beautiful.  It is also one of the most crowded locations on Skye in the summer, its popularity enhanced by its appearance in films such as Prometheus, Macbeth, King Arthur etc.  It has also become an extremely popular location in a number of Bollywood films recently.

Below is a small gallery with some of the images I captured.

    Recently visited the Western Isles, staying on North Uist and touring around.  We soon learned that it is possible to see these beautiful birds practically anywhere on the Uists.
