Sitting at the end of the Trotternish Ridge on The Isle of Skye is one of Skye's finest waterfalls, the Brides Veil. So called because of the way the water splits over the rocks, forming a lace like pattern, this waterfall is rather pretty. The Trotternish Ridge, created during an ancient landslide and sculptured over the eons by wind, rain and snow, is an amazing place. Featured in many feature films, often as an alien landscape, this ridge line is a spectacular location for photographs. Access to the bottom of the waterfall is fairly easy as you can park at the road side. However, getting to the top requires a bit of effort if there has been recent rains. The moors around here absorb the water like a sponge, and you will be slipping and sliding your way to the upper edge. But it's well worth it, with views of the The Old Man of Storr and beyond.
Seaside towns in winter are bleak places, when the crowds are gone there is only a sense of emptiness.
If the Isle of Skye were a wheel then Sligachan would be the hub. Skye's roads essentially branch out from Sligachan, with all traffic having to pass through this area. The Old Bridge, which sits next to the new main road bridge, is an ancient pack horse bridge, spanning the River Sligachan, This bridge is entirely unsuitable for modern day traffic, so now is just the perfect subject matter for landscape photographs.
