Cuillin sunset, looking towards Broadford Bay from the road to Kylerhea: it was extraordinary to watch the mountain tops fade in and out of the picture as the cloud patterns changed the silhouettes. We finally got to see a hint of 'red sky at night' on our last evening on Skye. Once the sun had set, the silhouettes became more intense; but the light in the sky became very pale - like dawn - before darkness eventually descended.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Skye Guide - a most informative site, with links to Aurora Watch and the Midge Forecast! I particularly like the Skye quotations on the top right of each page.
