I was keen to see this spot – but not keen for the walk up to the tower, we did have a crack at it though, just call me packhorse since I piggy-backed tickles just about all the way 🙂
This perspective is actually from the north side as you drive down towards Portree – I met a local Scottish photographer Christopher McLeod (http://www.christopherpmcleodphotography.com/) at Neist Lighthouse and he gave me some good tips on shooting this spot, however we did not have time to come back for sunset – i'll leave that on the list for next time 🙂
Anyway this one will have to do, the light was much nicer here than on the other side where we hiked up to the base of the tower steps.
