A Stormy Day in Glen Sligachan

Glen Sligachan, on Skye, runs for eight miles south from the Sligachan Hotel to the sea at Camasunary, near Elgol. The River Sligachan runs through the glen. The name comes from the Gaelic for 'shelly place'.

In the background, Sgurr nan Gillean can be seen. This mountain is part of the Black Cuillin and reaches a height of 3162ft.

Glen Sligachan serves as a dividing line between the Black Cuillin, to the west of the Glen, and the Red Cuillin, to the east.
