DRAMATIC images show a waterfall being blown back by high winds on a popular Scottish island.

Thomas Lamont, 32, was visiting the popular Mealt Falls on the Isle of Skye last Wednesday while on holiday and was nearly blown off his feet by the powerful coastal gusts.

The project manager, from Falkirk, was stunned by what he saw and said the water was pushed as far back as the nearby car park, leaving visitors soaked.

Lamont said: “We hadn’t actually planned to go there, but the weather was so bad so we just took a drive in the car and ended up there.

“The wind was coming from the east and the waterfall was getting pushed straight back up.

“It was getting blown back into the car park – people were getting drenched.

“I’ve never seen that before, it’s quite a spectacular view.

“When the wind was blowing it made a whistle sound through the railings which was quite nice.

“It was that strong it was pushing me off my feet.”
