Here are a few shots taken on a quick trip to the Coral Beach at Plockton on an otherwise pretty grey day. This beach is near the village of Plockton and is made from Maerl beds (a type of coral found off the coast of Scotland) as opposed to the more typical shell sand. The above shot is the first view of the beach from the footpath. Below is a shot looking out towards Skye and Raasay which are trying to hide in the low cloud. The colour of the sea is a beautiful aqua-marine as a result of the coral sand. The third shot is a close-up of the colourful lichen covered rocks near the shore.
