At the Top of the Bottom of the Storr

Storr Skye CoupleCouple Standing on a Hill at the Base of the Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

I’m a sucker for silhouettes of couples, so when I saw this couple climbing up a small hill at the base of the Storr as I made my way down from the summit, I just had to stop and take a photograph.

As you can see from the picture, recent logging has stripped the mountainside of trees, leaving just a few trees clustered around the small hill. It’s sad to see the remnants of the trees that once stood on the hillside, but the logging did allow for the unobstructed view of the Storr enjoyed by this couple.

View from Storr Base, Isle of Skye, ScotlandThis images should provide a little more context. Logging remnants are apparent, but without many trees, Loch Leathan is visible in the distance.

If you’d like to see the view from near the top of the Storr, which includes the hill shown in this post, have a look at Storr View.

  1. It’s an interesting looking little hill – not the tallest, but plenty of character!
