1400 feet up, the weather’s fine. Looking toward Glamaig and the Red Hills on the left, the Black Cuillin on the right.
'Blà Bheinn,' (Blaven) the word a marriage of Norse and Gaelic thought to mean 'blue-black mountain.'
Bold, beautiful Blaven. I have no words to mar this fantastic photo - just enjoy.

I’m on a Skye binge these days and I blame Frank Heumann, on holiday on Skye right now, the lucky sod! We can forgive him because he keeps taking these heart breaking, beautiful images and shares them on Facebook. If you want to see all of his collection, click on the link provided. In the meantime, you are looking at the Trotternish Ridge and a very beautifully framed Quirang. Last but by no means least are the Highland Cows, first registered as a breed in 1884 and therefore, the oldest registered breed. Their thick, shaggy coat, so perfect for Highland Scottish weather, allows them to repel snow and rain. They are not known for being picky eaters and will graze on grass that other cattle passes by.
