Skye and Cuillins from Badicaul

This photograph shows an elevated view over the crofting community of Badicaul, and across to the Isle of Skye and the impressive Cuillin mountains residing there. Located around a mile along the coast from the village of Kyle of Lochalsh on the west coast of the Highlands, the small settlement sits on the road to Plockton and affords impressive views over the Inner Sound towards Pabay, Scalpay and Skye.

The Cuillin mountains on Skye, popular year round among hillwalkers and climbers, can be distinguished into two groups: the Black or 'true' Cuillins; and the Red Cuillins. The Black Cuillins are higher and contain 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.
