The Cuilin Hills from Elgol

This postcard from the early 20th century shows the 'Coolin Hills' from Elgol, Skye

Elgol is a small fishing and crofting village on the west coast of Skye. On the shores of Loch Scavaig, with a glorious view of the great Cuillin range, it has long been a popular tourist destination, with boat trips to Loch Coruisk, and the small isles, Canna, Rum and Soay. With a steep, precipitous climb to the central part of the township, and materials brought in by boat, the school (pictured) was built on the shore - a wonderful setting to fire the young imagination
