The View From The Cuillin

Our gallery of the month is from Katrina’s trip to Skye


On a beautiful day in May I ventured up the Cuillin ridge. It was my first time hiking on Skye, and I’ll never forget it.

I say hiking, but you don’t really “hike” on Skye, do you? The gabbro rock that forms the Cuillin is rough and gnarly, forming a pinnacled paradise for scramblers and climbers.

We ascended the ridge from the public car park near Glen Brittle campsite, walking past Eas Mor waterfall.

Here’s a wee gallery of snaps from the day, featuring Glen Brittle, Sgurr Dearg, Sgurr Mhic Coinnich, Sgurr Alasdair and back again.
