Old Photograph Rattachan Pass Highlands Scotland


Old photograph of the road through Rattachan Pass which goes to Kyle of Lochalsh in the Highlands of Scotland. The photograph shows the mountain peaks known as The Five Sisters above Loch Duich. The peaks are are called Sgurr na Mòraich, Sgurr nan Saighead, Sgurr Fhuaran, Sgurr na Carnach and Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe. Legend relates that two Irish Princes, washed ashore during a storm, fell in love with two of the seven daughters of the King of Kintail. Having promised to send their five brothers for the remaining sisters, the Princes married the two youngest Princesses and returned to Ireland. The five sisters waited in vain, and eventually asked the Grey Magician of Coire Dhunnaid to extend their vigil beyond life itself, whereupon he turned them into mountains.
