Glen Sligachan, Minginish, Isle of Skye, Scotland

The view down Glen Sligachan from the roadside near Sligachan Hotel is one of the iconic views of Scottish scenery. The electricity lines that once made photography a tricky pursuit from there have gone by now but that's no reason to be lazy and wander further along to get a closer look. This photo was made while still a little way off from the hotel and the end of an enjoyable and varied hike from Elgol.

Of the hills, Marsco bring brings up the middle with Cuillin outliers like Garbh-bheinn and the main Cuillin range surrounding it. The land was becoming more level about me on the approach to my final destination but I couldn't mind that after that in which I had immersed myself. As it was to happen, the skies became ever more milky, forcing a break in the photographic activity and putting me in the way of temptation by the idea of dining in the hotel. There may have been a wait for my bus back to Broadford where I was staying but it wasn't enough for offering patronage to the eatery and I dined elsewhere that evening.
