Loch Coruisk and the Coolin Hills, Isle of Skye

This tranquil view of Loch Coruisk belies the dramatic and often forbidding scenery, here at the heart of the Black Cuillin. Set in a long deep hollow created thousands of years ago by glacial action, the loch has a spectacular setting admired by the many visitors who trek here from Sligachan or Camusunary, and by the less adventurous who approach by boat from Elgol. Sir Walter Scott, and later the painters William Daniell and J.M.W. Turner took this latter route, their resulting work raising awareness of Coruisk and ensuring its iconic status
