Tour Scotland video of photographs of Loch Scavaig on visit to Elgol, Isle of Skye. With the great Cuillin range behind this an area of spectacular scenery. The boat trip from Elgol across Loch Scavaig to Loch Coruisk and the base of the Cuillin has long been hugely popular with tourists. The scenery is simply stunning. Elgol, Scottish Gaelic, Ealaghol, is a village on the shores of Loch Scavaig towards the end of the Strathaird peninsula on the Isle of Skye, in the Scottish Highlands.

Scotland Day 9 - Isle of Skye [08:00]
After Eilean Donan Castle, we crossed the bridge to the Isle of Skye for still more unimaginably fabulous scenery. We stayed just outside the village of Portree, and headed out from there to the northernmost tip of the island. Stopped for lunch at the Flodigarry House Hotel, then around the peninsula to the village of Uig. We stopped at the grave of Flora MacDonald (who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape after the failed Jacobite Rising of 1745-46) and then ventured into the rocky crags of the Quirang. Next morning we stopped at the Talisker Distillery where Ann sampled the wares, and then we found our way to the Faerie Pools before heading down the road to Fort William.
Culross Abbey Fife Scotland [00:39]
Tour Scotland wee video of photographs of the ruins of Culross Abbey on visit to West Fife. This Scottish abbey was founded in 1217 by Malcolm I, Earl of Fife, and was first colonised by monks from Kinloss Abbey. The original 13th century abbey was cruciform in plan, without aisles. By the late 15th century the lay brothers had left, and the abbey community consisted of only choir-monks. The western half of the abbey was therefore abandoned, and the nave was demolished around 1500. In 1633 the east choir of the abbey was taken over for use as a parish church, while the adjoining buildings fell into decay.
