Loch Coruisk and Cuillins, Isle of Skye.

The Scavaig River leaves Loch Coruisk at its southern end, to cascade into Loch Scavaig. Coruisk, one of the most famous corries in Britain, is dramatically set within the similarly famous Cuillin hills of Skye. The jagged peaks of the Cuillin ridge in the background are shrouded by mist in this postcard view, a not unusual occurrence. However, it does not diminish the rugged appeal of this remote loch
