Greetings From The Isle of Skye

This four image colour postcard gives a glimpse of some of the stunning mountainous scenery on Skye. The photo of Portree taken from Fingal's Seat, shows Am Meall, the distinctive promontory jutting into Loch Portree with Scorrybreac behind, and the Island of Raasay in the background. The other three photographs feature the Cuillin range with the softer, granite Red Hills including the distinctive Marsco at the head of Loch Sligachan, and the Black Cuillin with the harsher, gabbro peaks perfect for rock climbing.
