Had the pleasure of driving from Broadford to Elgol last September - a journey never to be forgotten. Could talk all night about the sail over Scavaig with Seamus! However, that first sight of Blaven was awesome. Rained heavily on our arrival (over the bridge) but when we awoke the next morning someone had built mountains, least of all Blaven. Thank you.

I’m not a great one for posting comments on websites, but I have to thank you for this wonderful opportunity to reconnect with this most special of mountains in this most special of ranges. I am at a loss to explain its draw or its hold, but I am truly and deeply moved to view the panorama from the summit and I shall return again and again to feast upon it. Thank you so much for making it available and so easily accessible.

Delighted to see that the pioneering photographic work of Duncan Macpherson is at long last being recognised. It’s a very important piece of West Highland social history. His photos are excellent and I’ve also enjoyed his first two books, which I have been able to find copies of.

In June 2007 we tried to do the walk to the abandoned village of Keppoch described in a small booklet obtained from the Tourist Board. There was no information in the display at the start of the walk and we searched without success for the path which we understood left the left hand side of the track. We took the track (climbing up the valley) for 2 miles. We would love to do it next time. But beautiful scenery anyway.

The Clac Glas - Blaven traverse is the best mountaineering day for me. Done it three times and never been disappointed. So many happy memories of Blaven and Skye I have my own photos of Blaven as wallpaper to constantly remind me to go back.

Your site is beautiful and my heart longs to be in Skye. The wonderful photos you have gathered will keep me thinking of a return trip soon! Thank you for creating such a pleasing webpage.

Visited Skye again over Xmas (parents live in Portree) hired the bunkhouse in Torrin for the third time run by Becky and Paul. Beautiful views on a daily basis, remarkable place to visit and not wanting to come home, The drive to Broadford from Torrin is spectacular and the sheep are both stubborn when they want to be and also very funny with it, the whole place is both beautiful and relaxing. I would highly recommend a visit.

What a super site. My husband is coming to Skye this weekend to climb Blaven. He has kept it for his last munro! Lots of information for him to read before he heads up the hill. As a non-hillwalker it’s also good for me to see where he is heading and to learn a wee bit more about the area.

The Blue Shed Cafe is an excellent and peaceful place to be for morning coffee or lunch. Well recommended.

Some of my happiest schooldays in the early 80’s "lost" on Blaven with all mates from Sponne... how calm BZ & GJ stayed with 20 plus kids and fading light... after seeing the site I’ll be returning soon with my kids!

Just to say that I think your web cam looking east from Sabhal Mòr Ostaig College towards the Scottish mainland is fantastic. In just under a fortnight I will be visiting Skye and staying in Teangue looking out over a view that I expect to be very similar to that covered by your web cam only a few miles along the coast. Being able to see the changing scene and changing weather throughout the day over the last few weeks is really adding to the excitement of looking forward to my visit.

First a very big thank you for a really excellent and informative site.
I studied the site extensively prior to our recent visit to Torrin and found it to be a great source of information and interest. Our week at Dunmhor (Torrin), on the shores of Loch Slappin, with its superb views of Blaven as it changed its mood throughout the day, was one of the many highlights of our week (almost as good as the boat trip on the "Misty Isle" to Loch Coruisk).
Hopefully we will return to Skye soon, this time with hillwalking in mind.

Came across this site whilst visiting the Donnie Munro site. I have been visiting Skye regularly for the last 15 years - I love it and feel very much at home there. Beautiful scenery, lovely Gaelic music (if I’m lucky enough to catch a concert by the local talent) and a chance to brush up on my Gaelic (a limited knowledge I regret). Hopefully will be back there this summer. Regards to Art Cormack and family and Donnie Munro of course, two of my very favourite singers.

This is one of the most informative web sites I have ever seen - I found it by chance whilst visiting Donnie Munro’s site. I have holidayed in Skye several times and have climbed Blaven. I particularly like the Torrin area. You obviously know this area very well! Keep up the good work.

For those of us who can’t get to Scotland as often as we would like, these web cams can still provide the excitement at seeing Scotland live and put the butterflies back in our bellies at the thought of another visit. Preferably another motor cycle tour!

What an amazing place, unspoiled and breathtaking.

Every Easter my family spend a week at a holiday cottage at Ord Bay. The cottage is called "The Otters Place" and looks due west towards the Cuillin Hills. It is a magnificent view, with the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. I am very surprised that no-one has ever put a web-cam on the headland behind the cottage!

I camped on the shore of Loch Slapin with my family in August 2005. The view of Blaven was breathtaking. We swam in the crystal clear burn beside Torrin. We had lunch at the Blue Shed. The view from the Blue Shed must be one of the best in Scotland. I look forward to my next visit to this part of Skye.

Great images. Reminds me of all our holidays which we take in Skye. Look forward to the new web cam positions.

How wonderful to see the sun coming up over the loch and hills!! Wish I could be there and see it live... brilliant web site!

As a resident who’s ancestors have been in Torrin since records began it is nice to see something that is actually correct and up to date, thank you. Just for your information all the new children, are natives of Torrin parents who moved back to the village. I think that is very rare in this day and age of incomers.
