The Skye Trip, Part II – Elgol

Elgol is a tiny village in the southwest of the Isle of Skye, but despite its relative size it has become a veritable Mecca for Scottish landscape photographers because of the view it has. First, its beach, wild and rugged with precarious boulders and beautiful pebbles, then the broad expanse of the sea in Bay of Soay, then rising up sharp against the sky, the Black Cuillins, mountains so utterly majestic that you feel stilled in their presence. I’m probably exaggerating, but it’s a pretty darn magical place.

Peter and I spent two nights in Elgol either side of our trip to Loch Coruisk, and oh boy did we wish that we could stay for longer.
