Boats off Kyleakin

A small fleet of fishing boats make their way westwards, possibly to the harbour at Kyleakin on Skye, just to the left of the photograph. Beinn na Caillich (733m) dominates Loch Alsh, with Caisteal Maol (or Moil) situated on its rocky outcrop just visible behind the third boat from the left. Tradition has it that the castle was built by a Norwegian princess, married to a MacKinnon chief, who exacted tolls from ships passing through the straits between Skye and the mainland
