The Cuillin

Duncan Macpherson has taken this wonderful photograph of the Cuillin - the magnificent mountain range - from the Dunvegan road looking south. Barely visible on the left are the peaks of Glamaig. Looking south is the Pinnacle Ridge with the magnificent Sgurr nan Gillean, first recorded ascent in 1836, and the long slope of Bruach na Frithe. The Black Cuillin take their name from the dark gabbro rock. The range has twenty Munros, including the thrilling Inaccessible Pinnacle (Sgurr Dearg) and Sgurr Alasdair. Visitors come from all over the world, to climb or just to view
