Lochan nan Dùnan & the Trotternish Ridge/Quiraing, Isle Of Skye
Best enlarged

Trotternish or Tròndairnis (Scottish Gaelic) is the northernmost peninsula of the Isle of Skye, in Scotland.

One of its more well-known features is the Trotternish Ridge and landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometres (19 mi). The landslip contains two of Skye's most famous landmarks: the Old Man of Storr, an isolated rocky pinnacle, and the Quiraing, an area of dramatic and unusual rock formations.

The Quiraing (in Gaelic: 'Cuith-Raing') is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The whole of the Trotternish Ridge escarpment was formed by a great series of landslips; the Quiraing is the only part of the slip still moving, the road at its base, near Flodigarry, requires repairs each year.

I've been to Skye a few times over the years but I missed out on this area. Its amazing and looks like a man made quarry rather than formed by nature

Looks like a coast without the sea Doug...a wonderful place to have a picnic and enjoy the stunning surrounding! I love the colors and the fact I can see the wind on the lake ;)

Doug Shepherd has replied to Tanja - Loughcrew
Thanks very much for the visit and very kind comments Tanja, much appreciated. Yes it is a fascinating place. The landslip is about 30 km in length and covers approximately 8.5 Sq km.and is the largest, and the most beautiful, landslip in the UK. It must have been quite a sight when it happened!
