The Red Hills (Am Binnean Dearg in Gaelic) are sometimes known as the Red Cuillin though this is a local name. They are mainly composed of granite which is paler than the gabbro (with a reddish tinge from some angles in some lights) and has weathered into more rounded hills with vegetation cover to summit level and long scree slopes on their flanks.
The highest point of the hills is Glamaig, one of only two Corbetts on Skye.
