The Cuillins from Tarskavaig, Skye

The Sleat peninsula on the Isle of Skye, stretches from Kinloch at the northern end to Point of Sleat at the southern tip. Both coastlines can boast outstanding views, but some of the best views of the Cuillin can be seen from Tarskavaig on the west, as seen here with Loch Gauscavaig in the foreground. The crofting community of Tarskavaig developed after the more inland glens were cleared in 1811 by Lord Macdonald's Estate factor, and people were moved to the coast to make way for sheep.
