… on the North York Moors, or wherever I happen to be.

The Western Red Hills

These are known as the Western Red Hills. They’re rounded and blushing with a rosy hue, a hint at their shared moniker. And their sides are covered in long lines of scree. Quite a sight, especially when you compare them to the jagged Black Cullin ridges.

This view is taken from Garbh-bheinn, a Corbett and a Cuillin Outlier; ‘rough hill,’ just like its name suggests.

From left to right, we have Marsco, Beinn Dearg Mheadonach, in Gaelic, the ‘middle red mountain’, next the ‘big red mountain’ Beinn Dearg Mhór, and last but not least, Glamaig, the ‘greedy woman.’
