Reflections, Loch Slapin and the Red Hills of Skye

The perfectly still waters of Loch Slapin provide a mirror image of the hills behind. To the right the pyramid shaped Beinn na Cro 1879 ft (570m) is very often neglected in favour of its bigger, more impressive neighbours. This might be the very reason to climb Beinn na Cro, escaping the hoards of climbers on other hills and enjoying the solitude. From the summit one gets good views of Belig, Beinn na Caillich and north to the Isle of Scalpay. Central in the photo is Glas Bheinn Mhor 570m with its long, easily walked ridge, again providing nice views, and more than likely, solitude on the summit. Cutting between these two hills is Strath Mór, a rather uninspiring walk, but several hundred years ago, the main route between Broadford and Luib
