Scotland: Isle of Skye - paulsmit
‘The Storr seen from the south.’

	The Storr (left) is the the highest point of the Trotternish Ridge, a steep escarpment that forms the backbone of Skye's Trotternish Peninsula. The Ridge consists of lava sheets that welled up from the earth as The Atlantic Ocean opened up and Western Europe and America started to drift apart 60 millions years ago. Parts of the escarpment have tumbled down in massive landslides, leaving jumble of rocks  and peaks at the foot of the Storr, the highest of which is called the "Old Man". Photo Mick Palarczyk.
