Cuillin Hills From Elgol

The Story Behind the Image - Cuillin Hills from Elgol

My family and I came to Elgol to visit Prince Charlie's Cave, where Bonnie Prince Charlie hid from his pursuers. The cave can only be reached at low tide and requires a 30-minute walk across the headland south of Elgol.

We were lucky to time our visit for low tide, so we managed to enjoy a wonderful walk to the Cave and explore its depths before the tide rolled in.

We were wandering back across the headland to Elgol once more when I came across this lovely view, with the peaks of the Black Cuillins in the distance. I love the burnt orange look of the grass lit by golden late afternoon sunlight.

I wonder if Bonnie Prince Charlie enjoyed the view? I somehow doubt it; his mind would have been preoccupied with simply staying alive!
