Trotternish Ridge Light #3

Trotternish Ridge Light #3

Also referred to as “The Quiraing” or “Cuith-Raing’” is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish or Tròndairnis (Scottish Gaelic) on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

Taken in dramatic December weather, the stormy ephemeral light opens and beams of short lived godrays radiate down over the spiked land formation called The Cleat, Loch Cleat, and Loch Leum na Luirginn below. The highest ridge to the right is called Dun Dubh, and the interesting craggy dinosaur back - shark fin formation on the lower right is called Cnoc a Mheirlich.
