Isle of Skye

Sligachan is seen by many as the centre of the island – situated almost between the towns of Portree and Broadford, it is easily accessible. And even if it required loads more effort to get there – it would still be worth it! In fact, in our years of photographing elopements on the Isle of Skye, this remains one of our favourite locations.

Located where the Black Cuillin meets the western seaboard is Sligachan. This is where to come to see the view that so often graces postcards and canvass alike of the Red and Black Cuillin with Glen Sligachan between them. There is an enchantingly picturesque stone built bridge in the foreground under which River Sligachan flows wide and excitable. Sgurr-Nan-Gillean looms large to the right, all black and menacing, crags and pinnacles, wreathed in unnatural wisps of cloud or with every crevice etched in snow she looks a merciless climb.

But you needn’t worry about any of that – just a short, flat stroll from the car park you can find many secluded spots to elope with the love of your life with the towering Cuillin mountains forming the most amazing backdrop.
