Yup..the waterfall ... arch and pinnacle are one of the best views ..and because they are so remote..not many see them. I need to get back to get a decent photo of them though.



If its too rough for the boat.. there are also stunning walks along the cliffs. McLeods Maidenís look as good from the top as below.



And a walk to Talisker bay at sunset is well worth the effort..especially if you tie it in with a whisky distillery visit.



And if the winter weather is crap.. Skye still has some spectacular views



The Old man of Storr is still there ... braving the winters storms



And when the rain stops ..the clouds part ... the burns run fast and free



If you feel brave..you can clamber to the heights of the mighty Cuillin



and if the winter sun briefly illuminates the cliffs..it will made your day



Then turn around and look far out to sea.. where you may be lucky ... and see me



Yup..Skye is a magical place..even in winter..enjoy your stay Jeff..and Merry Xmas when it comes

superb photos gurnard thanks for sharing them with us, we are staying a few miles from the talisker distillery will cerntanly pop in there.
we aim to get right round the island by car to take in the sights & a few trips in the boat weather permitting will be a bonus.

merry xmas & happy new year to you too.

cheers

...on how to traverse Tartan Central in Decembuary - and they said it was getting quiet on here!

Don't forget to take a cordless drill too...
