Neist Point & Lighthouse

Photographs taken on 22 November 2010 at Neist Point, the most westerly part of the Isle of Skye.

Unfortunately, there were signs about saying 'No Dogs on Hill!' - we weren't exactly sure if this meant on the lighthouse path as well, there were sheep down there, so we had to leave ours in the car just in case and run down to take pics... the running downhill was easy, but the uphill a struggle on the way back, it's steep back up the steps near the car park!

Lovely place, once saw a Basking Shark there. Sat and watched it slowly swimming around the bay with its fins sticking out of the water, it was huge!
