Marsco. A giant amongst the Cuillins from above Sligachan Hotel, Isle of Skye

The great mass of Marsco dominates the view at the head of Glen Sligachan. With the distinctive shoulder prominent on the skyline, Marsco is unmistakable. A great favourite with walkers and climbers, it is easily accessed from Sligachan, a popular mountaineering centre on Skye. The summit is reached by quite a straight-forward hill walk, through boggy and grassy patches, and higher up, some scree. The 736m height, though not a Munro, provides the climber with wonderful views. The path from Sligachan, through the glen is clearly seen in this postcard, to the right of the house. The route through Glen Sligachan, some eight miles, leads to Loch Coruisk and Loch Scavaig. Sligachan Hotel lies close to the bridge over the river
