E is for Elgol, 1988
Elgol is a little settlement on the Scottish island of Skye. From the quay there you can get boat trips on Loch Coruisk that offer views of the sharp mountain called the Black Cuillin.
We went there in 1988 and were greeted by this wee beastie. Down below you can see the jetty and the cars parked above. There was a three-hour wait for a boat trip so instead we left Elgol and drove to Kylerhea and straight onto the ferry off the island (no bridge then). We ended up at Plockton and took a seal-watching trip from there.
You can see more photographs of Elgol on Donnie Mackay's Elgol blog.
