Old Photograph Glamaig Isle Of Skye Scotland


Old photograph of Glamaig, the northernmost of the Red Hills on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. In 1889, a Gurkha named Harkabir Tharpa scaled Glamaig in a 37 minutes; his total time for the round trip, starting and finishing at sea level in the bar of the Sligachan Inn was 55 minutes. Legend has it that he ran it in bare feet.
