The Skye’s the Limit: Sky Running

A homage to sky-running in the dramatic surrounds of the Scottish Highlands

Words by Pelorus

Skye is an untamed, primeval land, exposed to the punishing elements of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is home to just 10,000 people and features some of the most dramatic landscapes in all of Scotland, from the volcanic severity of the Cuillin mountains and the spectacular series of rock pinnacles at Quiraing, to the Old Man of Storr – rocky gyrolite fingers that stretch into the sky. It’s little wonder, therefore, that film-maker James O’Garra and photographer James Carnegie chose Skye as the location to produce their homage to sky running.
