The Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye

The fascinating landscape of the Trotternish peninsula, of which the area round the Old Man of Storr is a prime example, has attracted visitors for many years. The basalt pinnacle itself stands some 49m (165ft) high, the result of a massive landslip followed by centuries of weathering.
