View from Sgurr-nan-Gillean, Skye

This view certainly rewards the climber who has made it to the summit of Sgurr nan Gillean 3165ft (964m). From this vantage point, the huge bulk of the Cuillin outlier, Blà Bheinn, dominates the scene to the right. The enormity, and majesty of this mountain make it a great favourite with walkers and climbers. Far below, the River Sligachan runs through the glen, with Allt nan Fraoch-choire joining it at the base of the rounded Ruadh Stac, then making its way to Loch Coruisk. Looking over the tops of these hills are the more rounded, softer peaks of the Red Cuillins and in the far distance, the mainland hills
