Loch Coruisk in the Mist

Two People at Loch Coruisk, Isle of Skye, ScotlandLoch Coruisk, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Without boat or road access, two hikers crested the point of entry for their first glimpse of Loch Coruisk held in the palm of the mighty Cuillin Hills.

    I like how the figures put the scene into perspective. The clouds hint at the mystery that is ahead of them as they explore the land ahead.

    Agreed. The figures lend scale to that beautiful landscape. I really must get up to the western isles.

  4. Loch Coruisk is my favorite spot in the world! I camped there for two days once with my friend and then got a lift to the nearest town on a catamaran. I still have to scan those slides…
