near to Lephin, Highland, Great Britain

Summit plateau of Beinn nan Corrafidheag
Summit plateau of Beinn nan Corrafidheag
Being clad in a thick layer of peat, and exposed to the blasts of wind and rain from the south west, the flattish tops of most of the hills here are usually soggy and riven with often impassible bogs between the peat hags. Just now, all is dry, as there has been no worthwhile rain on Skye for a couple of months. This view is north, with Biod an Athair being the high point in the distance, and the Outer Hebridean Isle of Harris on the horizon.
