At 859m Caisteal Abhail is the second highest of Arran's mountains and beyond it lies the Kilbrannan Sound, separating the island from the mainland. Below the craggy summit Ceum na Caillich or 'The Witch's Step', a deep gash in the ridge, is clearly seen. In combination with adjacent peaks, Caisteal Abhail is said to resemble a recumbent figure, hence why it is referred to as 'The Sleeping Warrior'.

Thanks for the comments. It practically is the top of the world! Just beyond those rocks is a 670 metre drop, which was pretty intense. Well worth the 3 hour climb to get there - the view blew me away.

Hi Chris,

Needless to say this is two exposures combined together as the contrast range was several stops. But I did wait until the sun was right on the crest of the hill, which significantly helped.
