Picture Story

Idrigill point forms the western shore of Loch Bracadale and can only be reached after a 5-6 mile tramp through the hills above the loch side. The day was one of those only too rare ones even in a Scottish summer: hardly a breath of wind, lovely blue skies with high sirrus clouds and NO midges! These stacks are known as MacLeod's Maidens; some saying they are named after the drowned wife and two daughters of a MacLeod clan chief. I would like to return to get a very different image with a wilder sea and a threatening active sky, but I suspect that the weather to get those conditions might make the trek "challenging".
