The prison on the hill by LordLJCornellPhotos The prison on the hill by LordLJCornellPhotos
This is in the Quiraing on the Isle Of Skye. The giant rock formation on the horizon is know as "The Prison". As part of the Trotternish ridge the Quiraing has been formed by a massive landslip which has created high cliffs, hidden plateaus and pinnacles of rock. It is still moving..........slowly. The Quiraing truly is a land of fairy tales.
