Sligachan Hotel and Sgurr nan Gillean, Skye

This postcard shows the Sligachan Hotel, with Sgurr nan Gillean in the background.

Sligachan Hotel was built around 1830, with extensions added at a later date. Situated at the head of Loch Sligachan, on the main route through Skye, the hotel has long been a base for walkers and climbers. Many of the famous pioneers of the Cuillin Hills are said to have used the hotel, including the Pilkington Brothers and Sheriff Nicolson.

Sgur nan Gillean, the most northern peak of the Black Cuillin Ridge, sits behind Sligachan Hotel
