Isle of Skye, Scotland
Blà Bheinn

They don’t call the Isle of Skye the Land of Fairies for nothing.

Blà Bheinn (pronounced bla-ven), is a Munro on the island. That is, a Scottish mountain over 3000 feet in height. Although there are many variations of the meaning of Blà Bheinn, it is most commonly thought to be "Blue Mountain", based on a combination of Norse and Gaelic. Prepare to hike up the mountain and gaze at the dramatic landscape that opens up to you. Gabbro and basalt-dikes give the mountain its entrancing appearance - jagged peaks that pierce the sky.

While there are a few routes, the normal route begins from the east, on the shores of Loch Slapin. From here, across the blue mirror of the lake, Blà Bheinn’s peaks make for the perfect picture. Start your journey and walk the path into Coire Uaigneich, a corrie. Scramble past the golden-yellow heather and green carpet of grass. When you reach the summit, the incredible panorama of the summits around you will take your breath away. The Black Cuillin ridge from the summit is another of the stunning sights from the top. Don't miss out Blà Bheinn while in the Isle of Skye!
