View of Cuillin Hills from Portree Harbour, Skye

This postcard shows a view of the Cuillin Hills from Portree Harbour. The Cuillin Hills are among the steepest mountains in the United Kingdom and are the highest mountain range in the Hebrides. They include 15 peaks above 3000 feet and are formed from two main ridges (the Black Cuillin and the Red Cuillin).

Portree was originally known as Kiltaraglen (the chapel at the foot of the glen). The visit, in 1540, of James V, heralded a change of name for the township to Port an Righ (King's Harbour)
