Castle Moil by Roddy Atkinson

Castle Moil from the harbour of Kyleakin in the east coast of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. March 2010.

Castle Moil is an ancient ruined fortress built in the late 15th century. Legend states that it was originally built for a Norwegian princess known as ‘Saucy Mary’ who would charge a toll to any boat using the narrow channel by hanging a chain from the castle to the mainland to prevent unpaid crossings.
