The Quiraing, Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful islands on the planet, in my opinion. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a few winters there at a remote loch-side house sit and have had chance to explore a bit.
One of the places I love to go every time is The Quiraing on the north-east of the island. It’s a mysterious, magical place that is a photographer’s dream.
“The Quiraing is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The whole of the Trotternish Ridge was formed by a great series of landslips; the Quiraing is the only part of the slip still moving. The name Quiraing comes from Old Norse ‘Kví Rand’, which means ‘Round Fold’. (source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quiraing)
On the day I took these photographs, I’d come armed with a camcorder, camera and various lenses but had – like a moron – left all of the batteries charging back at the house sit. All I had was a grease-covered mobile phone attached to a power pack to work with, so I’m quite pleased with how these photographs turned out!
