Skye Late Winter Colours Trotternish RidgeYesterday being one of those cold sunny(ish) late-winter days Skye does so beautifully, I motivated myself out for an early morning walk and shared the path up to Rubha Hunish to myself with only a few sheep and birds.The light over the Trotternish Ridge was magnificent, a reason to keep stopping and turning around.

Heading to Coast Guard Hut Bothy Trotternish Skye
Just the other side of the old coastguard hut (now a bothy) there are huge cliffs, and the view to Skye’s northernmost tip.
