On a our drive around the Isle of Skye in 2013, we did come across some amazing sites, but I think this was one of the best…… the spectacular Kilt Rock. It was a little difficult to get really good photos, as there were a lot of bodies milling around, I have nothing against bodies, but not in my photos when I want try my hand at landscapes. I also have this thing about heights, so I guess I could have hung over the fencing like some of the bodies, but that was never going to happen even if I didn’t have a thing !
The famous Kilt Rock is a sea cliff, north east in between Portree and Staffin. There is a large car park and trying to keep upright, you make your way to the fence, and you look north up the coast to see the Kilt Rock. Closer by is the Mealt Waterfall, which free falls over the edge of the cliff and sometimes when the wind is really strong, the water never hits the bottom, but is blown away. The 200ft high cliffs marked in an almost tartan-like pattern by the rock strata give the cliffs their name. It is worth a stop to have a look and at sometimes of the year the seabirds are amazing, but not on our visit.
The following photos are looking south, which are really just as spectacular in a different way.
The last photo is of a wonderful rock formation, which you can see just before you reach the cliffs, its bound to have a name, they all have names, but at the moment I have no idea 🙂
