Lusa Bridge, Isle of Skye

Lusa Bridge is about 6 miles north of Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye, at the junction of the A850 Kyleakin to Portree road and the single track road to Kylerhea. The boy in the foreground is almost certainly Neil, the photographer's son, who from an early age accompanied his father on his expeditions around Kyle of Lochalsh. In his book 'Where I Belong', Duncan Macpherson comments that "we often cycled to Lusa and thence along the winding road to Allt Mor to the head of Glen Arroch where, at a height of over 900ft above sea level, a wonderful panorama opens up." The Ashaig airstrip now lies between the bridge and the shore, with the island of Pabay in the distance on the left and the Crowlin islands on the far right
