Quiraing... still moving landslips...

by barfischer in Scotland

The geology of northern Scotland is most interesting. The whole of the Trotternish Ridge (Isle of Skye) escarpment was formed by a great series of landslips; the Quiraing is the only part of the slip still moving, the road at its base near Flodigarry requires repairs each year.
We climbed to the Quiraing.... and got this view....

      Yes, Kerry is beautiful, lots of mountains. That's a good idea to check it out on Google Earth. Hopefully one day you could visit Ireland. : )
