Breathtaking Views on the Isle of Skye

 
Here I am, after 8 months, still posting about my trip to Scotland. My daughter and I, along with our driver, were headed for a day of adventure to the Trotternish Ridge, on the beautiful Isle of Skye.
 
What you are viewing, in the photo, is one of the most recognisable landmarks, the Old Man of Storr. If you look slightly right of center, you can see the peak formation rising against the horizon.
This 160ft rocky basalt pinnacle is standing at an elevation 2,359 feet.
Notice how small the fencing looks.
 
 
Even at this distance.... there is mystery and romance swirling in the air.

  3. Its wonderful scenery Meggie, having said that I have only been once and it rained most of the time. The rain is probably why the scenery is as beautiful as it is.
