Entrance to Loch Scavaig, Skye

"It is flanked by stupendous shivered mountains of bare rock, which shoot up abruptly from the bosom of the sea". Taken from 'Anderson's Guide to the Highlands vol 1' by George and Peter Anderson.

Loch Scavaig, in Skye, is fed by a short river from Loch Coruisk before it reaches the sea. The loch lies between Elgol and the tiny island of Soay. It is possible to look across Loch Scavaig from Elgol right into the heart of the main Cuillin ridge
