Staffin Sunset

The Story Behind the Image - Staffin Sunset, Ardteck

I keep meticulous notes on all my photos; with 300,000 images it helps to keep good records! So in my records, it says that this photo was taken at Ardteck on the Isle of Skye.

Which is fine but when I check the map there's no such place listed, and a thoroughly frustrating search of Google turns up only one other mention of Ardteck - in a photo taken by another landscape photographer. So either both of us are mad - a possibility with photographers - or we're using a local name that no one else uses!

What I do know is that this lovely sunset was taken near Staffin, where my family and I rented a holiday cottage for the week, and that this view looks across to the Scottish mainland near Gairloch. And what a view!
