The Cuilins of Skye in pensive mood

This is the Scottish west-coast highlands at it's best.

A wonderfully clear, calm and bright day. Perfect for looking over to the spectacular Cuilins of Skye.

It's difficult to believe when looking at such an idyllic scene but this is a mean, rocky and moody range that has a reputation for not only being both dramatic and challenging for rock climbers and hill walkers, but also deadly, for the unwary and over ambitious. For me, they are best enjoyed on a day like this, as a spectacular backdrop to a long walk by the lochside.
