Cuillin Ridge Skye Sgurr Dubh an Da Beinn and Loch Coir' a'Ghrunnda


Cuillin Ridge, Skye, Sgurr Dubh an Da Beinn, and Loch Coir' a'Ghrunnda.

Coir' a'Ghrunnda provides access to the Cuillin Ridge from the Southern end. In mist it is one of the most intimidating places I have ever been. A sense of foreboding comes over you, as if you are daring to enter a different world. It is not a place for a novice hillwalker, but we found ourselves there many years ago. With the compass virtually useless due to the magnetism in the rock, it was a chastening experience, but one I treasure.
