A mountain located on the Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye, Sgurr nan Gillean has a pyramidal peak which possibly makes it one of the finest of the Cuillin. Classified as a Munro, it rises to a height of 964m (3162 feet) on the eastern side of the Black Cuillin overlooking Glen Sligachan. The name Sgurr nan Gillean originates from Gaelic and means "peak of the young men".
