Glenbrittle and the Coolin Ridge, Skye

This sepia postcard was published by the Scottish Youth Hostel Association and numbered Series 145. Glenbrittle is one of the most popular places on Skye to start exploring the Cuillin range of hills. Along with a hostel, there is also a much used campsite. The glen itself has good arable croft land, and the beach provided Skye's first airstrip, which served passengers and an ambulance service. The first passenger flight took place on 5th December 1935, with flight time between Renfrew (Glasgow) and Skye, 1 1/2 hours. The service was run by the Northern and Scottish Airways
