Staffin, Skye: April 2013

This trip started out from Staffin slipway by Staffin Island, with the intention of heading towards the Northerly point of Trotternish. We knew we had to return to our start point and only had a few hours...

 

 Heading across Staffin Bay towards Flodigarry is a long paddle...
 
 
 
But on the Northerly side of the bay, the cliff on the outer side of Eilean Flodigarry kept us going. Huge basalt pillars have broken off and lie against the rock wall...

 
 Emerging from the other side of the island is a great view of the Trotternish ridge...
 
 
Unfortunately, we were running out of time and had to head back the way we came. The Old Man of Stor is to the left of this photo...


We stopped for a break on Staffin Beach...

 
Taking a look at the posts for drying fishing nets on Eilean Flodigarry at the end of our trip...
