Skye's majestic Cuillin Hills dominate this webcam. Brooding and atmospheric, the famous Black and Red Cuillin can be seen.
It would be hard to find a more dramatic and inspiring setting in the whole of Europe, let alone Scotland, than the one enjoyed by this webcam at the Sligachan Hotel. With the Black Cuillin towering at its back and the sparkling waters of Loch Sligachan at its foot, the hotel has served mountaineers, walkers and lovers of wild Highland scenery for over 175 years.
The Cuillin are a range of rocky mountains located on the Isle of Skye in the North West of Scotland. They are divided, visually and geologically into two distinct groups, the Red Cuillin and the Black Cuillin. The Red Cuillin are lower and, being less rocky, have fewer scrambles or climbs. Generally they receive less attention than their higher neighbours, and consequently the word Cuillin without a colour prefixed is often taken to mean the Black Cuillin.
The highest point of the Cuillin, and the Isle of Skye, is Sgurr Alasdair in the Black Cuillin.
Skye is renowned for its spectacular scenery, vibrant culture and heritage, as well as its abundant wildlife including the Golden Eagle, Sea Eagle, Red Deer and the Otter.
