Bracadale, Isle of Skye
Bracadale is the west-central area of Skye, most noted for its fine views of the Cuillins across Loch Bracadale. The loch is almost enclosed by two peninsulas - Duirinsh to the north, and Minginish to the south, but still presents a wide opening into the Minch. It has several fingers - Lochs Vatten and Caroy at the north end, and Loch Harport at the southern end. There are a number of small settlements in Bracadale, the most noteable being Struan where there is a Pictish Broch. The main road passing through Struan links Dunvegan and Sligachan. There is also an interesting single track road which goes directly through the centre of Skye from Struan to Portree.
