Brooding Skies

When To Come >> Love The Weather >> Brooding Skies

Nothing evokes the atmosphere of Scotland more uniquely than this: a dark, heavy, menacing sky hangs over a landscape which is dramatically backlit by a shaft of light from the horizon.

Go out and hunt these moments - they are unforgettable.

Where: anywhwere is good, but best places are the coast (esp. around Hestan Island), and any desolate moorland or hill country - try the remote hills east of Carsphairn around Holm of Dalquhairn and Lorg.
Threave Castle shows its true threatening face under this uniquely Scottish sky.

Love the Weather, Where & How: next ...
