Waterfall at Harrabol, Broadford

The waterfall pictured is probably on the Allt a' Mhuilinn which flows into Broadford Bay on Skye. Harrabol is now more commonly known as Harrapool, and is one of several linked communities, including Corry, Broadford, Waterloo and Breakish, which follow the shoreline of the bay and forms a ribbon development along the A87 road, the main route through the island.

The river originates in Loch Lonachan, to the south west of Broadford and flows through Glen Suardal, combining with several tributaries including Allt a' Choire before passing under an old stone bridge beside what was once a corn mill, close to this waterfall. The mill now houses an unusual attraction for Skye, a Serpentarium, displaying over fifty types of reptile from tiny tree frogs to iguanas and pythons.
