The Cuillin

From Carbost beside Loch Harport, with the hay stacks of late summer in the foreground, Duncan Macpherson has taken a wonderful photograph of the Cuillin - the magnificent range of mountains which attracts climbers, walkers and spectators from all over the world. Just visible on the left are the peaks of Glamaig. Heading south is Pinnacle Ridge and the main range of the Cuillin with 20 Munros - peaks over 3000 feet, including the magnificent Sgurr nan Gillean, first recorded ascent in 1836, Sgurr Dearg (the Inaccessible Pinnacle), Sgurr Alasdair, and finally, rising above Loch Scavaig, Gars-bheinn
