Force Eight… or maybe nine


The weather has closed in with reported winds at force eight or nine. Road signs, and even the locals, mentioned the coming storm.

The last week in Skye has been great. The weather managed to hold for a number of days and even the rainy days added a misty, atmospheric feel to the mountains and coastline.

The photo above was taken a Neist Point where a lighthouse resides on the most westerly point of the island. Nearby to the lighthouse is an area where stones had been piled up. Like some kind of memorial ground, these stones have been placed on top of each other.

No explanation was given so I assume they must be left by visitors to signify they have been there.
