A lovely landing shelter and marine environment. The presence of the boats makes the scene quite intriguing and the ruined castle is a distinct focal point. (Clearly it was meant to protect the port from enemies assaults... but eventually succumbed!).
The colourful little boat in foreground gives depth and a peculiar character to the image.

Ecobird has replied to Skipper
Thank you very much Skipper. It would seem that it was a fortress and although the present building dates back to around the 15th Century there are tales of a castle being there as far back as the year 900, when the Mackinnan chief at the time married a Norse princess nicknamed Saucy Mary. It is said that they ran a heavy chain across the sound and charged a toll to allow shipping vessels through.

Ecobird has replied to Martin Hogarth
Thank you Martin. Skye is lovely and it is good for photography, even if the weather can be a bit unpredictable. I love the mist and the moody skies, and fortunately we didn't get too much rain.

Very nice composition. I like the blue boat in the foreground, don't you just want to hop in it and go for a row!

Ecobird has replied to Frank Roolooth
Thank you Frank - I would prefer to hop in and let someone else row!! With my coordination I would probably just go round in circles!

Good evening Esther. Yes it is. I gather it was a fortress, but it is said that one enterprising clan chief put a heavy chain across the sound and collected a toll fee from passing ships. The alternative route was a long way around. Have a lovely evening
