Kilt Rock

     On the east coast of the beautiful Isle of Skye lies an amazing view of tall sea cliffs that drop vertically into the ocean. The image below is taken from a viewpoint that captures the rugged nature of the coast and also an unexpected extra element that adds to the beauty of the area: a waterfall.
    The top portion of the coast in the photograph is Kilt Rock that rises some 350 ft from the sea. It is so named as it is said to resemble a pleated kilt with its interesting basalt rock formations. It even has a tartan look to it.
    Closer to the viewer is Mealt Falls dropping 170 ft over the sheer cliff walls to the rocks and water below. Click on image for better view.
