The Storr and Loch Leathan, Skye

The Storr is a mass of imposing rock rising to a height of 719m (2,358ft), with the pinnacle known as the Old Man of Storr at its base. The Storr is situated a few miles north of Portree, forming a backdrop to the Storr lochs which supply the small power station below the cliffs on the shore at Bearreraig Bay. The unusual landscape seen at the Storr, continues up the spine of the Trotternish peninsula in north east Skye, with the Quiraing at the northern end.
