A boat trip on the “Misty Isle” from Elgol took me to The Cuillins, this beautiful mountain range that is synonymous with Skye and well known to walkers and climbers worldwide. The trip of about an hour, if my memory serves me well, leaves the walker or climber at the southern end of Loch Coruisk, at an improvised jetty on the Cuillins doorstep.

Walking towards the loch, one has to negotiate stepping stones over a small river, or if in full spate, a large river, depending on your view. Since I was with dog at the time and my stay was limited, due to the fact that a local wedding was taking place that day and the captain of the ”Misty Isle” was basically doing me a favour ( money talks ) I only had time for a walk around the shore of the loch. I didn’t fancy exposing the dog to the Munros that were available, anyway. Walking around some of the loch was quite satisfying in itself, in that there was no pressure to climb mountains and that the peaks were actually covered in cloud, anyway. The route around the shore is very manageable with a few boggy parts but this part of the world, while being beautiful, on a fine sunny day, also, for me, held a sense of eeriness and foreboding, just as does Glencoe and I wasn’t displeased to make my way back to the boat. Maybe it was just the weather.
