Rubh an Dunain

Chambered Cairn

Rubh an Dunain (Chambered Cairn) by GLADMAN An aerial view of the remote landscape context of this wonderful chambered cairn set beside Loch na h-Airde. Prospective visitors should note the long coastal walk from Loch Brittle campsite (the green field at the head of the loch) - obviously not to be undertaken lightly - but do it anyway. The viewpoint is the very exposed summit of Sgurr Alasdair... at 3,254ft the sentinel peak of The Black Cuillin.

Scary would be more like it. Rock climbing is not my thing since I do get vertigo on sheer faces... and this was the closest I've got to it. Incidentally a fine, fine chambered cairn as well. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Fair dos, I've got little experience myself but would love to get up into the Cuillin one day. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
