Looking back from Broadford

This is a wee snap I took from Broadford on Skye in 1996 on my way down the road after a couple of days in the Cullins, based out of Glenbrittle Campsite, with Mike. I’d stopped off in Broadford, where I knew from previous visits had a great baker to get something savoury. Broadford was the supply base when I worked for three weeks out of the old bothy at Camasunary as a field assistant to a Ph. D. student in 1992.

When I stopped to eat, a glance back revealed the beauty and drama of the Cullins and I got my camera out after carefully laying my second sausage roll on the bin on the left of shot.


Gull swooping in with rainbow

Cullins with rainbow but a gull is swooping in to nick my second sausage roll!


You can see the blur above the bin as a Great Black-Backed Gull commences an attack run on the sausage roll. As I was too busy taking the photo, I came away with one of my better photos but paid for it with the sausage roll.


I am a palaeobiologist in my early 40's carrying out research work. I am based in Scotland.
