Looking towards Cuillins

This photograph shows a view looking towards the Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye. A man can be seen in the foreground, gathering peat and storing it on his horse drawn cart.

The Cuillin mountains on Skye can be catagorised into two groups: the Black or 'true' Cuillins; and the Red Cuillins. The Black Cuillins are higher and include Skye's highest peaks, including Sgurr Alasdair at 3255 feet. They are primarily formed from basalt and gabbro and contain all of the islands twelve Munros. The Red Cuillins are composed mainly of granite and their highest point is Glamaig, one of the island's two Corbetts.
