Beinn na Caillich and River, Broadford, Skye

The Broadford river flows through Strath Suardal from Loch Cill Chriosd to the sea at Broadford Bay. The bare slopes of Beinn na Caillich at 732m rise behind, a prominent hill topped with a large cairn which can be seen from miles around. A Norse princess supposedly lies buried beneath the cairn. The first recorded ascent was in 1772, by Thomas Pennant. Boswell and Johnson decided against the climb despite staying close by at Corrriechatachan in September 1773.
