The Cuillin

The Cuillin Mountains, a massive confusion of gabbro and granite which straddle the island, are famous for their rugged splendour.

The Red Hills to the east have soft rounded contours to their steep sides while The Black Hills to the west, rising to almost 1000 metres are unimaginably hard and jagged in aspect.

It is to these, The Black Cuillin, that mountaineers from all over the world come to try their mettle.
The highest peaks are connected by a continuous ridge which twists, towers, and plunges its tortuous way from north to south.

The names along the way tell their own stories;

Am Bastier . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The Executioner
Sgurr a Ghreadaidh . . . . . . . The Peak of Torment
An Garbh-Choire  . . . . . . . . . The Wild Cauldron

The two main starting points for exploring The Cuillin are Sligachan, which lies at the junction of the two main roads through the island, and Glen Brittle, to the west.
