Elgol is a fishing village on the shores of Loch Scavaig towards the end of the Strathaird peninsula in the Isle of Skye, in the Scottish Highlands. The village had a considerably higher population prior to the Clearances. It now has a population of approximately 150 people.
Elgol's scenic attractions have drawn in many outsiders seeking holiday homes and a majority of the properties there are no longer occupied on a year-round basis. During the latest years, however, Elgol has been a hotspot for landscape photographers and the reason is the glorious views of the Black Cuillin hills visible in the background. A favourite compositional spot is the one which includes part of the honeycomb looking rock that glows orange during winter sunsets.
