Sgùrr Dubh is a fine peak, if rather overshadowed by its famous neighbours on the other side of the glen. Here it is pictured on a winter morning, during a period of thaw. Remnant Scots pines straddle the river A’ Ghairbhe*, which runs north-east from Lochs Coulin & Clair to Kinlochewe and thence to Loch Maree.
*“The Garry, the river from Loch Coulin; Gaelic gairbhe, ‘roughness’, which describes it.” – W. J. Watson, ‘Place Names of Ross and Cromarty’ (Inverness, 1904).
