Loch Coruisk, Isle of Skye

Loch Coruisk, an often dark and forbidding body of water, lies at the heart of the Cuillin and was probably formed over 280,000 years ago by glacial erosion. Painted by Turner and written about by Sir Walter Scott, Loch Coruisk, 'The Cauldron of Water', is probably the most famous corrie in Britain. The easiest access for visitors unable or unwilling to walk several miles from the nearest road is by boat from Elgol. Regular trips cross Loch Scavaig, arriving at a small pier from where a path leads across an eroded rock sill which separates the loch from the sea.
