Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail

Photographed from the western shore of Loch Duich, the Five Sisters of Kintail topped with a light sprinkling of late spring snow dominate the head of the loch.

The five peaks are part of a ridge some 8 km (5 miles) long which rises steeply above Glen Shiel to a maximum height of 1,067 metres (3,501 feet). The distinct peaks are a well-known landmark in the area and a popular hillwalking expedition. Three of the Five Sisters are classified as full Munros, while the other two are described as subsidiary Munro tops.
