The Coolin Hills from Elgol, Skye

With one of the best views of the Cuillin on the island, Elgol has been a popular destination for visitors since Victorian times. It is also the departure point for boat trips to Loch Coruisk deep in the heart of the mountains. The isolated community was once dependant on crofting and fishing but improvements in the roads and transport have encouraged many more tourists to visit the area
