Loch Duich and The Five Sisters from Mam Ratigan

This postcard shows Loch Duich and the mountain peaks known as 'The Five Sisters' from the Mam Ratigan Pass. The Pass leads to Kyle of Lochalsh and rises from sea level to 350 metres.

Loch Duich is a sea loch that travels south east from the village of Dornie and leads into the Kyle of Loch Alsh, before flowing into the open sea. The loch is most famous for having Eilean Donan Castle situated at its mouth.

The Five Sisters rise above Glen Sheil at the head of Loch Duich. They are called Sgurr na Mòraich (876m), Sgurr nan Saighead (929m), Sgurr Fhuaran (1068m), Sgurr na Carnach (1002m) and Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe (1027m)
