The 'neck' of An Aird
The 'neck' of An Aird, taken 5 years ago
Looking back along the neck of the peninsula which joins An Aird to the rest of Skye. This is a classic 'tombolo' with a former island being connected to the mainland by a build up of sand, and in this case probable glacial debris as well.
