Sligachan Burn and Sgurr nan Gillean

Ashley P Abraham opens his book Rock Climbing in Skye, describing Sgurr nan Gillean as taking 'high rank amongst the mountains of Great Britain'. From this vantage point by the river, where the ridge rises high above Sligachan, the distinctive conical peak dominates the ridge and the skyline. It is an awesome sight for the climber about to tackle the summit, with the enormity of the hill more apparent with each step. Sligachan has long been the starting point for walkers and climbers making to this ridge, and into the Cuillin range
