The Cuillin Ridge from Loch Harport

A view of the Cuillin Ridge from Loch Harport, on the west coast of Skye.

The Cuillin mountains on Skye can be categorized 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 Cuillin Ridge is located within the Black Cuillins and encompasses some of its highest peaks. The Red Cuillins are composed mainly of granite and their highest point is Glamaig, one of the island's two Corbetts.
