Cuillin from Sligachan

The Cuillin are a range of rocky mountains located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The true Cuillin are also known as the Black Cuillin to distinguish them from the Red Hills across Glen Sligachan. The Cuillin contain 12 Munros (Scottish peaks over 3000 feet (914 metres)) including Sgurr Alasdair, the highest at 3258 feet (993 metres), Sgurr nan Gillean and Sgurr Dearg (the Inaccessible Pinnacle).

This photograph was taken from Sligachan. Sligachan is a small settlement on Skye, Scotland. It is close to the Cuillin mountains and provides a good viewpoint for seeing Sgurr nan Gillean.

Sligachan is situated at the junction of the roads from Portree, Dunvegan and Broadford. The hotel was built in around 1830 at this road junction. Many early climbers chose this as a spot to start ascents of the Cuillin.
