View from Storr Mountain

This softly coloured postcard shows the absolutely stunning views from The Storr, one of the most photographed views in all of Skye. The Storr rising to over 2,300 feet is at the southern end of the Trotternish Ridge. Central in this extraordinary formation is the Old Man of Storr, one of a number of basalt pinnacles that ring the basin known as The Sanctuary. Rising to a height of 165 feet, The Old Man is both land and sea mark and visible from miles around.

This view looks down to the lochs, Loch Fada and Loch Leathan, which feed the Storr Lochs Hydro Electric scheme, opened in 1952. There is just a glimpse of Portree harbour, and in the distance the Red Cuillin.
