The Coolins from Bruache na Frithe

From the summit of Bruach na Frithe (958m, 3143ft), the peaks, ridges and shattered basalt rock of the Cuillin spread out in a dramatic panorama. Despite being a Munro, Bruach na Frithe is not considered too difficult, while still providing spectacularly fine views of the Cuillin ridge. It was the second recorded ascent of a Cuillin summit in 1845, when Professor J.D. Forbes and local ghillie Duncan MacIntyre made it to the top from Sligachan
