Skye sketching and climbing

Elgol is an inspiring place, for climbing as well as sketching. We were blessed with such lovely weather for most of the week. From Elgol you can take a boat trip into Loch Scavaig which must be one of the most spectacular places in Britain, bringing you right into the centre of the Cuilin Hills. I went many years ago as a child, we sailed into Loch Scavaig, watching the seals basking on the rocks, as they watched us! I had never seen landscape like this before, walking into the nearby Loch Coruisk, it had quite a presence. It must have made a lasting impression on me. I keep returning and I'm always inspired.
