Skye. Loch Scavaig and the Coolins from the sea

With the influence of the mountains rising high above the sea, the result can be sudden and very violent storms on Loch Scavaig. The boat trip from Elgol across Loch Scavaig to Loch Coruisk is very popular with tourists, walkers and climbers, having become a 'must' for Victorian visitors after Sir Walter Scott and John MacCulloch had visited in the early 1800s. The pointed cone of Sgurr nan Gillean stands out in the distance in this scene, with the dark clouds grazing the tip of the peak, the promise of rain never far away
