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.

    In my last post I took a trip back in Skye's history to look at the ruined Church at Kilmuir just outside Dunvegan.  For this post I thought it would be interesting to go even further back in time to the Iron Age.

    There are a couple of good boat trips out of Portree where it is possible to get some great views of White-tailed sea eagles and other wildlife.

    Have lived on Skye for nearly 6 years and every now and then we get to catch up with some Dolphins. Looking for Otters spotted a white wave in the distance. The water was like a duck pond so had to be something swimming! And there they were!
