Photographer's Note

hello...Loch Slapin is a lake in the southern part of the Scottish island of Skye . The lake is accessible via the B8083 that connects Broadford with Elgol . Torrin is on the east bank.

From Loch Slapin you have a view of a number of red granite hills . These hills are the remains of a landscape that was much higher (about 1200 m) just after the volcanic activity than the current landscape. They must be seen as the petrified magma chambers of volcanoes, most of which have disappeared due to erosion. The Beinn na Cro , at the northern end of the lake, is an example of this.

The Blaven , clearly visible from Torrin, is an offshoot of what is called the black Cuillin. wiki source
