Brochel Castle, Brochel, Raasay
In my purely personal opinion, this is one of the most beautiful spots in Scotland, and probably in the whole of the British Isles. Not only is the setting for the castle quite superb, but the fact that the area does not receive many visitors, gives this spot a stillness and quiet that is rare in the modern world. I was lucky too that for a short while, on this October day, the sun was shining brilliantly, later there was to be a downpour of heavy rain. This view was taken from the same spot as one of my other photos of the castle, but I zoomed the lens to enable more detail to be seen. Sadly, one day, what remains of the castle is going to slip into the sea, so don't put off making a journey here for too long!
