Sligachan and the Cuillin Mountains of Skye

Crow Canyon Journal

It was our last day on Skye and we piled into our Rabbie’s mini-bus right after breakfast and John, our tour guide and driver, headed out of Portree.  We were on our way on the long drive back to Glasgow. But we stopped after only ten miles to get one last look of the misty isle. We gazed at the river winding down the glen and noticed that the hills on the left were smaller, rounder and well, redder, than their neighbors on the other side which were taller, rockier and darker. The Red Cuillins on the left are made of granite. The Black Cuillins on the right are made of gabbro. Together they form the Cuillin and are considered the most beautiful mountain scenery on Skye.
