Snow rests atop the peaks of the Scottish Highlands in the United Kingdom. The area is generally sparsely populated, with many mountain ranges dominating the region, and includes the highest mountain in Britain and Ireland, Ben Nevis.

The Isle of Skye can also be observed offshore, to the west. It is the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island’s peninsulas radiate out from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillin Hills.
