    Black Cuillin

    The peaks of the Black Cuillin are mainly composed of gabbro, a very rough black igneous rock which provides a superb grip for mountaineers, and basalt, which can be very slippery when wet.

    The summits of the Cuillin are bare rock, jagged in outline and with steep cliffs and deep cut corries and gullies.

    Twelve Black Cuillin peaks are listed as Munros, though one of them, Blaven, is part of a group of outliers separated from the main ridge by Glen Sligachan.

    Broadford Bay

    Broadford, is the second-largest settlement on Skye.

    Like many places in Skye, Broadford derives its name from Old Norse. To the Norsemen this was Breiðafjorðr - the wide bay.

    The Gaelic name is of modern derivation and assumes that the "ford" element meant a river crossing.

    Broadford was a cattle market until 1812, when Telford built the road from Portree to Kyleakin. Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars settled during the first half of the 19th century. Writing in the middle of the 19th century, Alexander Smith said, "If Portree is the London of Skye, Broadford is its Manchester.

    Legend holds that the recipe for the liqueur Drambuie was given by Bonnie Prince Charlie to Clan MacKinnon who then passed it onto James Ross late 19th century. Ross ran the Broadford Inn (now the Broadford Hotel), where he developed and improved the recipe, initially for his friends and then later to patrons. Ross then began to sell it further afield and the name was registered as a trademark in 1893.

    Camasunary Pebble

    Camasunary is a small bay on the Strathaird peninsula of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Camasunary is the Scots form of the Gaelic name Camas Fhionnairigh, and means "Bay of the White Shieling".

    The Camasunary Fault is a geological subsurface feature underlying a portion of the Isle of Skye extending under the Sea of the Hebrides.

    Coral Beach

    Skye is famous for many things, but great beaches are not high on the list. You'll find better ones on Harris, or Tiree, or Uist, or Berneray, or Iona. But there are a few wee gems on Skye, and the Coral Beach at Claigan is one of them.

    Its combination of accessibility and white sand make it a very attractive option on a warm sunny day.

    Despite its name, and all these tales of the Gulf Stream, the beach is not made of coral at all. It is actually composed of pieces of dessicated and sun-bleached algae. If you look carefully it is still possible to find some fairly big bits.

    Dun Beag

    Dun Beag (the small fort) is the best known, the best preserved, and the most accessible broch on Skye.

    A short and easy walk up a slope of sheep-cropped grass takes you to the remains of the broch itself. It has massive walls, still mostly intact to more than 2m high. In them you can find lots of detail, including a gallery, the entranceway, a stairway and a security cell.

    Fairy Glen Serenity

    On the West side of Trotternish at Balnacnoc (which means - the village or township in the hills) above Uig, is the Fairy Glen – a Quirang-like landslip in miniature. The road winds around small round-topped grassy hills with lochans (ponds) in between which gives the glen an otherworldly feel.

    Skye has a long history involving the Fairys, most of which is related to Dunvegan Castle and their ‘Fairy Flag’. The Fairy Glen (much like the Fairy Pools in Glenbrittle) has no real legends or stories involving fairys that can be traced. The simple fact that the location is unusual so it has been given the nickname Fairy Glen.

    One of the hills still has its basalt topping intact which, from a distance, looks like a ruin and has been called (inexplicably) Castle Ewan. It is possible to climb to the top where there is not much room, but does have wonderful views. In the low cliff behind Castle Ewan there is a very small cave where it has been said pressing coins into cracks in the rock will bring Good Luck.

    Flora MacDonald

    In Kilmuir Cemetery, just behind the Museum of Island Life, is a tall memorial to Flora MacDonald, 'Preserver of Prince Charles Edward Stuart'. Despite the romanticism of the Skye Boat Song et al, she was a real and remarkable person.

    This is the place to come to and spend a moment reflecting on her amazing courage. She was buried in this graveyard (though not very close to where her memorial stands) in 1790.

    Glenbrittle

    At the head of Loch Brittle is a big beach. There is sand here at all states of the tide, and plenty of space for playing, kite flying and the like.

    The sand is not white, but that apart it is a beautiful spot with views to the Island of Canna.

    Jurrasic Skye

    Although the vast majority of Skye is composed of fossil-free basalt rocks, there are exposures of sedimentary beds in several places around the coasts. Many of these exposures are difficult to reach, and many of them are rich in fossils. For the casual fossil seeker, the most attractive of Skye's sites are the ones with evidence of dinosaurs. Luckily, two of the best places to find them - Staffin and Duntulm

    On the beach at An Corran, Staffin, are some remarkable footprints. They were left by a family of dinosaurs that walked across the sand here some 165 million years ago. To put that in context, the gabbro rocks of the Cuillin were formed about 60 million years ago, and they were carved by the glaciers of the last ice age on Skye just 11,000 years ago. These are very, very old footprints. To be able to see and touch them in-situ is an amazing experience. There is a sense of connection with these beings from an unimaginable distance in time.

    The dinosaurs that passed here were Ornithopods, herbivorous creatures who walked on two legs. They, along with the carnivorous Megalosaurus and the omnivorous Cetiosaurus and Stegosaurus, contribute to Skye's reputation as the 'dinosaur isle'.

    Kilmuir Thatch

    There are very few old-fashioned thatched cottages to be seen today in the Highlands. A hundred years or so ago thatched houses were very much a part of the Highland scene and within their walls, by the light of the peat fire – the crofters of the Islands kept alive the songs and stories which have made the Hebrides famous throughout the world.

    Warm, sturdy and economical of scarce materials, the croft house was admirably suited to the landsacpe and the climate. It embodied the principles of streamlining hundreds of years before scientists thought of the idea, with the result that it could stand up to the worst of the winter gales.\

    Kilt Rock

    The famous Kilt Rock is a sea cliff in north east Trotternish.

    It is said to resemble a kilt, with vertical basalt columns to form the pleats and intruded sills of dolerite forming the pattern.

    Lealt Falls

    Lealt is a crofting settlement on the western coastline of the Sound of Raasay on the Trotternish peninsula of Skye.  The River Lealt which gives its name to Lealt, passes through on the way to the Sound of Raasay.

    The Lealt Valley Diatomite Railway was a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge which ran parallel with the River Lealt.

    The western end of the line was at Loch Cuithir, where diatomite - known locally as Cailc (Scottish Gaelic for chalk) - was extracted from the lochbed and dried on wire nets. The seaward terminus had warehouses on the cliff-top at Invertote. At the base of the cliff was a factory where the diatomite was kiln dried, ground and calcined. The line was extended from the factory onto a pier into the Sound of Raasay. During its existence, the Skye Diatomite Company extracted 2000 tons of diatomite.

    Loch Bay

    Stein is a crofting township, situated on the north eastern shore of Loch Bay, in the west of the Waternish peninsula.

    In 1790, the British Fisheries Society planned a fishing port to be designed by Thomas Telford. However, poor management of the project, and the lack of enthusiasm shown by the local crofting population for fishing, meant only a small proportion of the scheme was constructed.

    Only a few structures were completed to Telford's design, including a pier, a storehouse and possibly the now-ruined smithy.

    The 18th-century Stein Inn is the oldest pub on Skye.

    The village of Dunvegan lies approximately 5 miles south along the B888 road. Near the junction of this road with the A850, just 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from Stein is the Fairy Bridge.

    According to tradition as related by R.C. MacLeod one of the chiefs of Clan MacLeod married a fairy; however, after twenty years she is forced to leave him and return to fairyland. She bade farewell to the chief at the Fairy Bridge and gave him the Fairy Flag. She promised that if it was waved in times of danger and distress, help would be given on three occasions.

    This flag can be found on display in Dunvegan Castle.

    Loch Coruisk

    Loch Coruisk is an inland fresh-water loch, lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin. Loch Coruisk is reputed to be the home of a water horse.

    Sir Walter Scott visited the loch in 1814 and described it vividly:

    “Rarely human eye has known

    A scene so stern as that dread lake,

    With its dark ledge of barren stone...”

    Lord Tennyson reported more prosaically:

    “Loch Coruisk, said to be the wildest scene in the Highlands, I failed in seeing. After a fatiguing expedition over the roughest ground on a wet day we arrived at the banks of the loch, and made acquaintance with the extremest tiptoes of the hills, all else being thick wool-white fog.”

    Majestic Quiraing

    The Quiraing is awesome. It is supernatural. It is a place of wonder and amazement. It is outstanding by any measure. If you are fit enough to walk the narrow path and scramble up and down the steep slopes – you must do it. To visit Skye without experiencing the Quiraing seems unthinkable.

    Go on a bright and clear day for views of the Outer Hebrides and the Scottish mainland, framed by the pinnacles, cliffs and great buttresses.

    Go on a wet and windy day to feel your spine tingle as the clouds and mist swirl around you in this unreal and menacing landscape.

    Whatever the weather, you’ll not forget the experience.

    Marsco

    Marsco is a peak in the Red Cuillins. It lies on the east of Glen Sligachan.

    Marsco has magnificent views of the main Cuillin ridge as well as out to sea; many walkers reckon it is perhaps the finest of all the Grahams.

    A photograph of Marsco and Glen Sligachan, taken by Richard Nutt, features on the cover of the second album by British synthpop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), Organisation, released in October 1980.

    The folk group Runrig released a song called "Nightfall on Marsco" on their 1981 album Recovery.

    Neist Point

    Neist Point is a viewpoint on the most westerly point of Skye.

    Neist Point is the most westerly point on the Duirinish peninsula on the Isle of Skye. It projects into The Minch and provides a walk and viewpoint.

    The light house was designed and built by one of the "Lighthouse Stevensons" - in this case David A Stevenson, the light and its associated dwellings cost £4,350 when they were built in 1909. The station was converted to automatic operation in 1990 and the lightkeepers were withdrawn. The foghorn at the front left corner is no longer in use.

    In Summer, the stunning coastal waters and cliffs around Glendale are home to many hundreds of guillemots, razorbills, fulmars, kittiwakes and shags.

    Puffins are also regularly seen off Neist Point in small numbers, although they do not nest on Skye.

    The beautiful black guillemot, with its white wing-patches and red legs, is resident all year round.

    Portree Harbour

    Is the largest town on Skye .  Portree has a harbour, fringed by cliffs, with a pier designed by Thomas Telford

    The current name, Port Rìgh translates as 'king's port', possibly from a visit by King James V of Scotland in 1540.

    However this etymology has been contested, since James did not arrive in peaceful times.

    The older name appears to have been Port Ruighe(adh), meaning "slope harbour".

    Prior to the 16th century the settlement's name was Kiltaraglen ('the church of St. Talarican') from Gaelic Cill Targhlain.

    Red Cuillin

    The Red Hills (Na Beanntan Dearga in Gaelic) are sometimes known as the Red Cuillin.

    They are mainly composed of granite which is paler than the gabbro (with a reddish tinge from some angles in some lights) and has weathered into more rounded hills with vegetation cover to summit level and long scree slopes on their flanks.

    The highest point of the hills is Glamaig, one of only two Corbetts on Skye (the other being Garbh-bheinn, part of the small group of gabbro outliers surrounding Blà Bheinn).

    Skye Marble

    Skye Marble has been extracted from Strath Suardal in Torrin for centuries. Marble from Torrin was used in Armadale Castle and Iona Abbey. The extracted rock was used primarily in the production of agricultural lime. Marble is mined and crushed on site, producing agricultural lime, pebbledash for housing, ready-mix concrete products and some decorative marble. A narrow gauge line, built in 1907 ran for 3½ miles from the quarry at Suardale to Broadford pier. It transported Skye Marble from the nearby village of Kilbride (Cille Bhrìghde). The railway closed in the early 20th century and the track bed remains as a public footpath. A number of old railway remains can be seen.
