Fionn Mac Cumhail
St Fingal's Seat, Portree, Isle of Skye

Many tales and myths surround the Celtic mythological hero (not saint) Fingal, or Fionn MacCumhal, and hundreds of geographical features in Scotland and Ireland are named after him, and sometimes his dog Bran. Suidh Fhinn, Ait-Suidhe-Thuin, or Fingal's Seat (312 m, 1367 ft) rises behind Portree to give wonderful views from the top to the east over the village, bay and across to the island of Raasay, with the mainland beyond. The photograph here of a cairn, looks south to the Cuillin.
