The Winding Road through the Quirang, Isle of Skye

The minor road pictured snakes its way up from the crofting communities of Stenscholl and Brogaig, over the Quiraing and across the moor to Uig on the western side of Skye. The strange rock formations comprising the Quiraing, lie at the northern end of the Trotternish Ridge which divides the peninsula. Volcanic activity, landslips and erosion have combined to create this most dramatic of landscapes
