Five Sisters of Kintail

A high ridge some 8 km (5 miles) long rising steeply from Glen Shiel to a maximum height of 1,067 metres (3,501 feet). The five distinctly pointed summits are a well known landmark and a popular hillwalking expedition. Three of the Five Sisters, which are all over 3,000 feet, are classified as full Munros, with the other two being subsidiary Munro tops.

The ridge containing the Five Sisters continues unbroken to the east where it takes in a further three Munros, often known as the Brothers.
