Loch Coruisk, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Loch Coruisk framed by the Black Cuillins

We came to the beautiful coastal village of Elgol in southern Skye and bought tickets for Misty Isle bound for Loch Coruisk across the bay.  While waiting for the boat to arrive we had our regulation picnic lunch in another idyllic spot.

Misty Isle was crewed by father and son team Seamus and Stuart – more polite and proficient service providers you could never hope to meet.  Once across the bay we scrambled over the rocks to be greeted with an exquisite view of the Loch framed by the craggy Black Cuillin peaks.

It was an exhilarated group that returned to Misty Isle after an hour of exploring the Loch, and we got under way again for the return voyage just as soon as Seamus and Stuart had dispensed hot tea and shortbread to the passengers, under the watchful gaze of the seals lolling in the sunshine on the rocky outcrops.
