The Black Cuillins rise to a height of 3,000 feet straight from the sea, not the biggest in the world, but this mountain range is the most demanding place for climbers in the United Kingdom. The Black Cuillins has jagged peaks of rough grey gabbro rock a dramatic place indeed. I have included a web address in this tip for anyone who is interested in climbing here on Skye.

Equipment: I only saw the Cuillins from the road but check the web site it has all the details you need.
