Towards Storr

The Storr is a rocky hill on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye. The hill presents a steep rocky eastern face overlooking the Sound of Raasay, contrasting with gentler grassy slopes to the west.

The area in front of the cliffs of the Storr is known as the Sanctuary. This has a number of weirdly shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips. One of the most famous of these is known as the Old Man of Storr.

The A855 road, just north of Loch Leathan, directs our way to the Storr lighted by the transient light when the clouds are opened.

Amm, I forgot to describe that in this picture there is an adition to the typical elements of the Scottish scenery – the grey tones in the sky and the green grass – a couple of sheeps on the right foreground ;-).
