Trotternish or Tròndairnis is the northernmost peninsula of Skye.
One of its more well-known features is the Trotternish landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometres. The landslip contains two of Skye’s most famous landmarks: the Old Man of Storr, an isolated rocky pinnacle, and the Quiraing, an area of dramatic and unusual rock formations. The summit of The Storr, on whose slopes the Old Man of Storr is located, is the highest point of the peninsula.
Purple heather is also known as fine leaved heath and bell heather. The purple heather is the first to flower (mid june) and grows on dry moorland and rocks throughout the island.
In the old days it had many uses from tanning hides to thatching roofs and making brooms.
