Cuillin hills from the sea

On our Skye trip I managed a swim from the beach just across the road from where we were staying. I hadn’t realised that there was such a lovely sandy beach there, and the tide was just right. The water was really quite warm too – I think about 15C.


Wonderful to swim with the red Cuillin in the background!


There were one or two jellyfish as well. Very pretty!

When the tide is out, it’s a big beach. Nice and quiet too in the morning (in contrast to the roads on Skye with everyone dashing to view the popular Instagrammable stuff – idiots).


Altogether a lovely place.
