The Isle of Eigg

Picture taken by Christophe, skipper of St Hilda, while exploring Eigg last week. He said he felt like a dwarf in the Lord of the Rings exploring the Middle Earth then he read the below. Interesting!

J.R.R Tolkien used to holiday on Eigg and this view, of Rhum’s dark mountains Ainshval and Askival towering into the clouds beyond the windswept sound, is said to have been the inspiration for his mystical Lord of the Rings.
