Sgurr Alasdair and Coir' a Ghrunnda, Skye

Coir' a Ghrunnda is separated from its more well known neighbour Coire Lagan by the heights of Sron na Ciche, on the extreme left in this image. The loch in the upper reaches, just visible at the lower edge of the photograph, is the highest body of water in the Cuillin, and is protected by part of the main Cuillin ridge as well as the subsidiary ridge formed by Sgurr Alasdair, Sgurr Sgumain and Sron na Ciche. Sgurr Alasdair, at 992 metres, 3255 feet, is the impressive highest peak of the Skye Cuillin, named after Skyeman Sheriff Alexander Nicolson who scaled it in 1873
