    Camus Bhan

    (pronounced Camus Ban) Is Portree’s only sandy beach but only accessible via boat from Portree or a walk from Penifiler down a steep slope.  The grey sandy beach is very rarely busy and is an ideal spot to watch the white tailed eagles that nest nearby. Colour Description: Mid tone blue grey

    Jurassic 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

    Colour Description: Refreshing yellow with the merest hint of green

    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'.

    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.

    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.

    Colour Description: A yellow based green, warm & delicate in tone.

    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.
