The image top is of the Car Park for the Rigg Viewpoint.

The second and third images are looking East and North. The flat area down there looks like a championship standard Links Golf Course, but must be kept in such condition by sheep grazing.

The view south is also impressive with Portree in the distance, and the Storr Pinnacle only 3 miles south.

This area is the most scenic area on the east coast of Skye, and some people claim it is the best viewpoint in Scotland as you can see mainland Scotland, Isle of Rona, Isle of Raasay, Holm Island, Red and Black Cuillin mountains, Trotternish Ridge and the Old Man of Storr.
