The Cuillin Hills from Kyle of Lochalsh

This postcard shows the Cuillin Hills on Skye, from the Kyle to Kyleakin ferry boat at Kyle of Lochalsh. The Kyleakin Lighthouse can be seen in the distance.

The Cuillin Hills are among the steepest mountains in the United Kingdom and are the highest range in the Hebrides. They include 15 peaks above 3000 feet and are formed from two main ridges- the Black Cuillins and the Red Cuillins. Records show that the first person to climb the Cuillins was the Reverend C. Lesingham Smith, in 1835
