A Small Scotch From the Isle of Skye

A small kilted 'Scotch' boy stands guard over four of Skye's most recognizable tourist attractions. Loch Coruisk has, since Victorian times been a favoured destination, crossing Loch Scavaig, and scrambling over the rocks to reach this dramatic, almost other worldly cauldron. The contrast to these dramatic Cuillin views is the Highland cattle standing on the shores of Loch Fada, with the landmark Old Man of Storr rising behind. Hardly a tourist comes to Skye who doesn't see Dunvegan Castle. In it's dramatic rocky setting with the loch just below and with the history of centuries of MacLeod Chiefs having inhabited the Castle, it is of great tourist appeal.
