13 Oct 12   Short walks on the Sleat penninsula and near Broadford, Isle of Skye.  

Showers at first, gradually clearing later.

No photographs yesterday as I was hunkered down in the campervan during nearly 48 hours of
continuous rain, which led to flooding in many parts of Scotland.  I'm glad I wasn't in a tent.

There was some activity out there though.

The Marble Trail follows the line of an old railway which led to the marble quarries at Strath Suardal.
These are the remains of the winding wheel which was used to haul trucks up the steep incline.
