Wave Watching at Neist Point

We went to Skye with friends on Sunday, because we knew from the weather forecasts that a deep low pressure system with strong winds was heading into Western Scotland from the Atlantic. The idea being that we would head for the coast and hopefully see a rough sea.

So we headed for Neist Point which is up on the north west of the island, on the Duirinish peninsular.

It poured with rain all day but we where so lucky because as we reached Neist Point the sky cleared and there was a beautiful sunset. However Neist point is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, there are the most incredible cliffs along the shore with waterfalls cascading down them. And as the sun went down all the rocks where lit by a golden hue.

The sea was rough as we expected and we stood on the rocks in front of the lighthouse watching the waves crash in until it was almost dark and we could stand the cold no longer.

If you're ever on the north end of Skye go and see Neist Point.

We now have a page of movie clips on the Pottery House web site.

There is only 3 at the moment but we will add more over the coming weeks.

Loch Tarff

After we left The Falls Of Foyers we went on for a walk near Loch Tarff.

Unfortunately the path we planned on taking was closed due to the Glendoe Hydro scheme, so we went for a walk around the Loch itself.

Here are a few of my photos.

Falls Of Foyers - Spectacular

There has been a great deal of rain in the Loch Ness area for the past week or so, so we went on a trip a few days ago to see the Falls Of Foyers, just down the road from Pottery House.

We have never seen so much water coming over the falls, it was quite spectacular. The amount of spray coming from the falls made it like a heavy rain storm, even though at the time it was dry.

Even the path down to the falls was like a river.
