The Cuillin – River Sligachan

One of the dramatic cascades on Alt Dearg Mor looking towards Sgurr nan Gilean, one of the most famous Cuillin peaks. I had literally just managed to clean the raindrops off my polariser when the sun popped through a tiny gap in the clouds, illuminating the rocks and adding some much needed contrast and light to the scene. Conditions like this are my absolute favourite but very hard to predict!

About Sligachan

Sligachan is a small settlement on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Its stunning location on the River Sligachan and its close proximity to the Cuillin mountains make this one of the most iconic and interesting locations on Skye. Situated at the junction of the roads between Portree, Broadford and Dunvegan Sligachan is a great base to explore the island. The hotel here was built in 1830 at this road junction and has historically been the base for climbers to tackle the Cuillins. Legend has it that when in 1395 the Lord of the Isles attacked Skye a great battle was fought at Sligachan and the invaders were driven back to Loch Eynort, where after a cunning plan by the MacAskills all the invaders were wiped out.
