The Cuillin Hills from Elgol, Isle of Skye

This card shows what is considered by many to be the finest roadside view of the Cuillin anywhere on Skye. This calm scene with boats at anchor belies the notoriously changeable and difficult nature of Loch Scavaig, which is susceptible to sudden squalls, no doubt brought about by the unique topography
