The Mountains of Kintail and Kyleakin, Isle of Skye

Kyleakin appears to have a rather precarious hold on Skye, as the houses cluster round the harbour and bay, with the Obbe on one side, and Kyle Akin on the other. The twin ruined walls of Caisteal Maol are silhouetted against the waters of Loch Alsh which stretches away to the hills of Kintail in the background
