Sunset on Coruisk, looking to Loch Scavaig from Sgurr a' Mhadaidh

Loch Coruisk lies in within the horseshoe of the Cuillin mountains on Skye. The name comes from the Gaelic 'Coir' Uisge' which means 'corrie of the water'. Beyond Loch Coruisk, Loch Scavaig opens out into the Sea.

This photograph was taken, looking south east, from Sgurr a' Mhadaidh in the Black Cuillin. Sgurr a' Mhadaidh comes from the Gaelic for 'rocky peak of the fox'. It is 3011ft high and has four distinctive tops.

This photograph can be found in 'The Misty Isle of Skye' by J A MacCulloch
