Dunvegan is situated at the junction of the A850, and the A863 roads and it is the largest village on the north-west part of the Isle-of-Skye, on the shores of Loch-Dunvegan.
Here on picture is the main street of the village, 57.4355 -6.5795 on the map.
The main attraction is the Clan MacLeod Castle complex (which we did not visit), and one Michelin-starred restaurant (where we did not dine), famous bakery and some gift shops. The latest statistic indicates a falling population in recent years, except for the high season’s. (source: Visit-Scotland site).
At the shores of the Loch, which I will post a photo of, there are number of Seals colonies – but we did not see any, local people said those coming during summer months.

An interesting ensemble of residential properties capture under an agreeable ambient light. I like the obliq point of view, also the colours and sharpness.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Merci de nous faire découvrir la ville et son architecture.
Belle lumière mettant en valeur l'habitat.
C'est toujours surprenant de voir circuler les voitures à gauche !

The length of the road is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the cars and of the houses. The nmgood luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

This looks typically British, a great view down the country road running through this village. The composition is excellent and well-balanced and I really like the strong sunlight, which brings out the colours at their best.

Bon POV sur la rue principale et sur les bâtiments, les voitures roulants a gauche , attention vous êtes du mauvais cotés, c'est dangereux :-)
bonne lumière, belle présentation
jhm (160941) 2017-03-21 6:16
I think that you has took this picture through the window of the car.
Notwithstanding a very good picture, we see all the car driving to the rightside.
Your picture is splendid taken.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

good image of this road, I like the houses we can see here, light management is also good, well seen,
macjake (73061) 2017-03-21 12:10
its funny how you mentioned in your note 2 popular places to visit in the local area but you didn't see either one haha
when i look at this scene it reminds me right away how I had to deal with driving on the left side of the road for the first time. Yikes! that was hard to get used to.
I enjoy these everyday street scenes, its simple but still very informative for us who live far away. great lighting and exposure with depth. cheers

I’m always astonished about the dangerous situation with all these cars parked in the rather narrow roads in these villages. Lovely sunny pictures that illustrates my point.
adramad (49992) 2017-03-21 14:27
At last this day was the sun of Scotland, the image is very attractive with these modern but pleasant houses, which form a magnificent set next to the road.
A nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both the sharpness and the lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a good day.
Very best regards.

A quaint little country town in Scotland and a nice change from the big cities of Glasgow & Edinburgh. The dotted white line of the road adds strong lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!
