“For rarely human eye has known
A scene so stern as that dread lake,
With its dark ledge of barren stone.
Seems that primeval earthquake’s sway
Hath rent a strange and shattered way
Through the rude bosom of the hill,
And that each naked precipice,
Sable ravine, and dark abyss,
Tells of the outrage still.”
Quite the review of Loch Coruisk from Sir Walter Scott in the 1870’s. Not to be missed it seems. So, during our second day on Skye, Stu and I took a boat over to that remote freshwater loch which sits in amongst the Black Cuillin. That’s the igneous mountain range from this image. It was a great adventure in search of the mythical Kelpie with, as you can see, some epic clouds. On the return journey we were accompanied by a pod of dolphins which was pretty awesome in its own right. Then, to top it all off, there were multiple double rainbows as we drove towards our next destination… quite the day!
