Brothers' Point might just be one of Skye's well-kept secrets.  Maybe we just chose a quiet time, but in our several hours of shooting there, we only saw three people, apart from ourselves and our clients.  

The undulating landscape, the jagged cliffs and the amazing views towards Kilt Rock make it an incredible location for wedding and elopement photography.

We've put together a virtual walkthrough for anyone keen to head there, yet uncertain of what the walk involves.

From Portree, head towards Staffin.  Just before you get there, you'll see a bright red roof on your left and a layby.  This is located very close to the Skye Pie cafe.  The layby is where most people park.

Head carefully along the main road back towards Portree until you see the wooden sign post on your left.

Follow the road until you reach a gate.

Once through the gate, follow the sign post down to the right.

It'll look like it's heading straight for a house - but there's a small path to the left.

Follow the path on as it curves downhill.

You'll head through another gate on your way downhill.  The path then splits in two when you get to the bottom - take the right hand path and keep the ruined cottages on your left.

A distinctive rock forms a clue that you're going in the right direction.  At this point, you'll have to cross a river.  The easiest way to do it is scramble across the rocks nearest the sea.

Head up the hill and keep the old ruins on your left (they're on the right in this image - just to confuse!)  This is where the walk gets really boggy and wet.

Already, you can see Brothers' Point with its distinctive peak.  Head in that direction.  The ground will still be very wet and muddy.

Cut through the gaps in the old stones and head up the thin track.

And you're there! 

From this point, you can choose to climb all the way up to the top of the Point or use the cliffs as a backdrop.

The walk takes around 45 minutes to an hour, but it's not difficult.  The astounding peaks, incredible views and breathtaking magic of the location make up for any minor inconvenience.
