Isle of Skye - Trotternish

Trotternish or Tr˛ndairnis is the northernmost peninsula of the Isle of Skye, in Scotland.
One of its more well-known features is the Trotternish landslip, a massive landslide that runs almost the full length of the peninsula, some 30 kilometres (19 mi). The landslip contains two of Skye's most famous landmarks: the Old Man of Storr, an isolated rocky pinnacle, and the Quiraing, an area of dramatic and unusual rock formations. The summit of The Storr, on whose slopes the Old Man of Storr is located, is the highest point of the peninsula. While boasting many vertical heights, the area is mainly unsuitable for rock-climbing due to the friable rock.
The most northerly point of Trotternish, Rubha H¨inis, is also the most northerly point of Skye. The three major settlements on Trotternish are Portree (generally regarded as the capital of Skye), Uig and Staffin.
Trotternish is one of 40 National Scenic Areas in Scotland.
In terms of number of speakers, Troddernish is the strongest Gaelic-speaking area of Skye. In the 2001 census, 61% of the population returned as Gaelic speakers, there are Gaelic-medium units in the Staffin and Kilmuir primary schools, and the area is the focus of one of Comunn na GÓidhlig's Gaelic development initiatives, Lasair. In 2010, Comunn na GÓidhlig named Staffin as their Gaelic Community of the Year.
