We made a concerted effort to move on from some of the more “honey pot” tourist locations on Skye this year, but there’s one place we always have to come back to: Elgol.
Elgol is famous for it’s incredible coastline, featuring rugby ball-sized “pebbles”, balancing boulders, undercut cliffs, and gridded platforms. The coast here also gives the explorer an unparalleled view across the sea towards the dramatic crags of the Black Cuillin.
We picked a rather changeable day to head to Elgol, with the morning offering the best of the potential conditions. Powerful gales and passing squalls blew around us as we gingerly navigated the otherworldly coastline.
