Loch Scavaig and the Cuillins of Skye

This is truly one of the most wonderful views on the Isle of Skye. The single track road to Elgol ends in a very steep descent to the shores of Loch Scavaig. From there the view of the Cuillin is stunning, with Garsbheinn, 895m on the left and Sgurr na Stri, 497m on the right standing sentinel over the entry to Loch Coruisk. Since the early 1800s from Elgol, thousands of tourists, walkers and climbers have taken a boat trip over Loch Scavaig to Coruisk. The writer of this postcard pronounced it 'very grand indeed'
