Isle of Skye Skylines

Isle of Skye Skylines
The northernmost peninsula on the Isle of Skye is known as Trotternish

The Trotternish Ridge is the result of a massive landslip, and runs for about 19 mlles/30 km, almost the full length of the peninsula. Trotternish Ridge is the result of the UK’s largest known landslide. The most obvious landslides occurred within the last 15,000 years and some movement does still occur, as the regular road repairs lower down testify.

Both the Old man of Storr and The Quiraing are famous geological features that have been formed as part of this landslip.

The ridge is a very popular destination for hillwalkers. Rising to 2358 feet/719 mtrs at its highest point, it has a total of 13 named summits along its way.

The The Black and Red Cuillins

Two Cuillin ranges dominate the landscape on Skye: the Black Cuillin and the Red Cuillin separated by Glen Sligachan. A single footpath runs through the glen for a distance of 8 miles/13 km from Sligachan in the north to Camasunary Bay in the south.

The iconic ridge of the Black Cuillin is the UK’s most challenging mountain range. Over 6.8 miles/11km long and above 3,000 feet/914 mtrs in places. The highest point is Sgurr Alasdair at 3,254 feet./992 mtrs

The gentler, rounded Red Cuillin are popular with hillwalkers, the highest point being Glamaig, at 2,543 feet/775 mtrs. The distinctive peak of Marsco, shown above, is also in the Red Cuillin and stands at 2414 feet/736 mtrs.
