The old man Of Storr by fueast

The old man Of Storr

The classic view of the old man with the Cuillins in the background. Pretty impressive when you get past the coach loads of Japanese and other tourists which sort of spoils the remoteness on the lower slopes. Luckily there's a barbed wire fence which has to be climbed to get to the upper slopes.
View looking the other way along the amazing Trotternish ridge:

Oh forgot to say that you can wave at @gords who is currently busy collecting moss on Raasay which is the island in the background. Weird but true.
wow, what an incredible view!

@jo13 Ta, could you knudge the button again... not that I'm expecting to ever make the popular page again but you never know... You'd like it up there actually. Lots of birds soaring. Golden eagles according to Gords but he has no photos to prove it!

Oooops sorry. That sounds right up my street, would so love to go on a little road trip and put all that I have learnt into use.
July 2nd, 2013  
Iconic!
July 2nd, 2013  
@jo13 Think you'd have to make that a big road trip from where you are.it took me 9 hours. Although you can fly to Inverness.

@fueast Ha, hate flying I leave that to the birds, there are so many places I'd like to visit on route that it would probable take a couple of months!

July 2nd, 2013  
Amazing view. Wow
July 2nd, 2013  
glad you got a moment with it not filled with tourists. Beautiful
July 2nd, 2013  
That is absolutely breathtaking! I didn't know there was such a place on this planet. I have made sure to hit the FAV button. :-)

It's always a bit of a shame when you seek out a 'remote' location and you end up with LOTS of company. But gorgeous scenes like this are bound to draw a crowd. At least you are able to get a clear shot without a bunch of tourists in it. I hate it when the only shots one can take are cluttered by men with pot bellies in plaid shorts. LOL
July 2nd, 2013  
@pasadenarose Ha! I have such a story from the fairy pools. Later! The tourists are there in this shot around the rock - its just much bigger than it looks here so they would be very small in comparison.
July 2nd, 2013  
Magnificent scenery Alison!!! Scotland at it's best!!
July 2nd, 2013
