The Summer Isles

The Summer Isles

The Summer Isles is a group of about 20 islands, rocks and skerries that sit off the Coigach peninsula in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, the largest and only inhabited island is Tanera Mhor. You can walk to the closest, Isle Ristol, with its long white sandy beach, on the lowest of tides. This was taken from the popular viewpoint above Achltibuie in Ross and Cromarty, which offers a terrific view of the isles and the mountains of Wester Ross in the far distance.
