Go west

Explore #4 21/10/2021

 

Go west - Sunset at Neist Point, looking across the Minch and over the sea and far away.

 

The narrow, rocky finger that houses Neist Point lighthouse, is the furthest west you can travel in mainland UK without having to board a ferry. It's hard to beat this as one of the best locations in the UK to witness sunset.

 

Just back from an invigorating week on the magnificent Isle of Skye though challenging conditions prevailed such that Skye often throws up. The forecast was fairly dire for virtually all the week and it pretty much turned out that way too; even though this image hints at something very different.

 

This was the only evening forecasted to have a remote chance of decent light so I had to choose a location wisely so as to make the best of this sole opportunity. Never having previously had chance to visit here, I wasn't disappointed and to my relief and joy it endorsed my choice of location. Even though it was blowing a real hoolie, the light was pretty spectacular made all the more so by being in such a special setting.

 

Skye is indeed an incredible and inspirational location, regardless of the conditions and is such a great place to rejuvenate oneself.
