Stac Buidhe, Skye: April 2013

This trip started at Port Gobhlaig on the Trotternish peninsula. We were on spring tides, but the weather was calm and we weren't far off slack tide. Firstly, we headed up to Rubha na h-Aiseig. The tide was still pushing us along and over a small overfall which was fun. Around the corner were some interesting caves and arches...




 
Then it was time to double back, past Port Gobhlaig and Southwards to the caves around Stac Buidhe. This has the best sea arch we've seen...
 

 
and lovely cliff walls...
 

There are plenty of sea caves and the water was crystal clear. This was an unforgettable trip!


 
It isn't one I'd like to do in anything other than calm weather as it is quite committing because of the cliffs.
