Talisker Bay, Isle of Skye

July 14, 2017

We arrived at Talisker Bay right after the sunset, when everybody else already left the beach.
Do you know the poem Tràighean (Shores) by Sorley Maclean? Here's the first verse (in English):
"If we were in Talisker on the shore
where the great white mouth
opens between two hard jaws,
Rubha nan Clach and the Bioda Ruadh,
I would stand beside the sea
renewing love in my spirit
while the ocean was filling
Talisker bay forever:
I would stand there on the bareness of the shore
until Prishal bowed his stallion head."
