Coruisk from Bealach na Glaic Moire, Skye

This stunning view was taken looking south east down the length of Loch Coruisk, with Sgurr na Stri impassive in the centre and the Strathaird peninsula behind. Sleat, at the south end of Skye, lies hazily in the background. Bealach na Glaic Moire (or Glac Mhor), at 760m (2,492ft), is the lowest pass to Coruisk on the main Cuillin ridge. At the head of Coir a' Mhadaidh, it drops down to Coruisk between Bidein Druim nan Ramh and Sgurr a' Mhadaidh
