Folklore varies on how the Old Man of Storr got its name and it involves a few magical creatures:
1) A naughty boy terrorized his village to the point of being banished to the mountains by the whole town. If that wasn’t bad enough, a witch put a curse on him so that he could never go out during the day, lest he be turned to stone. After many years and feeling very remorseful, the man one night appealed to the villagers and promised that he was indeed reformed. They accepted his apology and told him to go to the witch’s house in order to lift the curse.. so he started walking, but as we was, the first morning rays of sun touched him and he tragically transformed into stone
2) A giant was buried with his thumb sticking out of the ground
3) A brokenhearted hobgoblin chiseled the rocks in honor of his fallen masters
4) A couple walked up the hill every evening for many years until the wife was too old and weak to make the trek. Mischievous fairies on the hill offered the old man a chance to always have his wife with him whenever he wanted. The old man, excited at the offer said yes.. but the fairies tricked him and turned them both into pillars, ensuring that they would indeed be together, forever.

Quite a few people wondering just how far we are from the iconic North Coast 500 so here's a map showing our location. We weren't joking when we said we're basically right on the route itself.
Flights in to Inverness, we can orchestrate a pick up and off you go in a stunning LandRover Defender or Discovery! What are you waiting for?
“Daddy’s gone for a run!” Several times a week for the past few months, this has been our conversation. All that practice will have paid off as we watch @cardinall
