The Cuillin Hills from Tarskavaig

Tarskavaig is the largest of four small villages on the north west shore of the Sleat peninsula on Skye. The name originates from the Norse 'Torsk Vig' for Cod Bay. The village offers spectacular views of the Cuillin Hills which contain some of the most challenging hill walking in Britain. The ridge contains eleven Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft) while a twelfth, Blaven, is separated from the main ridge by Glen Sligachan.
