Rubh' an Uillt Dharaich shore
Driving the minor (and very badly disintegrating) road round the headland gives about the best view from the mainland of Skye of the state of the tiderace in Caol Mor between Raasay and Scalpay, where I was expecting to see a group of sea kayakers crossing, having waited overnight for the wind to drop. Three of us had crossed the previous evening, as an evening in the pub was more attractive than a night camping on Raasay, and we were prepared to face the rough water to get there ! Tragically for my photography, the other kayakers, having not been drinking, had got up earlier than us and were already in the sound of Scalpay.
