Little crofter’s cottage, Shieldaig, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

Happy New Year 2016 !

A beautiful little crofter’s cottage overlooking Loch Shieldaig on the road from Torridon to Applecross. Historically, the crofter and his family would have existed on livestock and fishing, with root crops grown for the winter. This little house is now used as a holiday cottage.

Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

It is one of the most photographed landscapes in the world. The Old Man Storr is a spectacular pinnacle of rock on the Isle of Skye in Scotland that’s surrounded by stunning views. Think rocky hills next to gorgeous green grassy slopes and then visions of water beyond. The hike to the pinnacle’s foot is just 1 mile, making it a relatively easy walk. How did the rocky pinnacles form? The weight of basalt lava on sedimentary rocks of the earlier Jurassic age caused massive landslides. The hills are made of horizontal flows of the basaltic lava, built on top of each other.
