...standing on the clifftop at Elgol watching the mountains vanish as if by magic. The snow blew over onto Rum and vanished out to sea, leaving the mountains with a dusting of fresh snow.

A wonderful place captured in special mood - the small red boat down there looks so fragile!

A snowstorm and a tiny red boat scurrying for the shore. Tells a story.

A fine spot for weather-watching, with a touch of magic in the image and another in your description.
Snow over Rum is more acceptable than ice in Whisky ...

You've had a great time up there in Skye, Dougie, and captured some lovely shots, despite the weather perhaps not being exactly how you'd wish, but you have managed to capture some great shots.

Fabulous image the inclusion of the boat and the two tones of the water. Great light (as always in your images) and a view that is almost a signature for Skye..brilliant.
Have you ever been to Skye Mr Brannigan?
