The Isle of Skye and the Cuillin Hills from the Back of Keppoch, Arisaig

This colour photograph was taken from the back of Keppoch near Arisaig on the mainland. Travelling on the road from Fort William to Mallaig, this is where one would get the first glimpse of the Cuillin mountain range on the Isle of Skye. This 'Road to the Isles' route is a popular tourist route, with wonderful scenery. The ferry at Mallaig provides, along with Kyle of Lochalsh, the mainland routes to Skye, landing at Armadale on the Sleat peninsula. This photo gives just a glimpse of the beautiful white sand which can be found along this coastline, and in good weather attracts beach lovers. It was near here that some of the scenes from the acclaimed movie Local Hero were filmed
