If you get up early enough, as I did recently to pick up a group from a cruise liner coming in to Portree one morning, and you have your camera handy, you can catch some rare sights and sometimes rare beasts. I had just stepped outside of my house when I noticed we had a morning moon peeping around the corner of Beinn an Cailleach, on which is buried a Norse princess who requested that she be laid where “the winds of Norway could blow over her”. I paused to take a quick snap and then noticed something strange. On the ridge which leads up to the mountain there seemed to be a some kind of mythical creature crawling over it. I took a quick shot and then as an afterthought I zoomed a little. See what you make of it. I have provisionally named it “The Red Cuillin Monster”!
