The Boat Landing. Loch Coruisk, Skye

The boat from Elgol bringing groups of visitors to Loch Coruisk moors at this spot on the shores of Loch Scavaig. From here it is a short walk across the eroded rock sill which separates Coruisk from the sea. Since the early 19th century, before climbing was the popular pastime it is today, tourists were attracted to the loch in the heart of the Cuillin simply because of its remoteness and the spectacular setting. The work of Sir Walter Scott, John MacCulloch, William Daniell and J.M.W. Turner, brought Coruisk and the Cuillin to a wider audience, attracted by the wild and dramatic landscape
