A view from Blaven (Bla Bheinn) on the Isle Of Skye. Blaven is an outlier to the Black Cuillins.

So I'm curious, do you have to hike a great ways to get these shots? This reminds me of a view from an airplane. It seems so high up! I just cannot fathom views like this because we simply don't have them really in America. I mean we have our fair share of breathtaking scenery, but it's very different (a different kind of breathtaking).

Well this shot was taken whilst climbing Blaven which is a mountain on the edge of the Cuillins. From the top of it you get a great view across the tops of the Black Cuillin mountains which are in a horseshoe shape. I have climbed this mountain three times but haven't git to the top. First time I took a wrong turning and got stuck under a huge overhanging rock slab. The only way round it was to go back halfway down the mountain and then go up again but there wasn't time to do that. It would have been dark. The next two times it was bad weather. It's never great to be caught up a mountain in a thunder storm. You feel a bit too exposed. 
This mountain I would allow a day for. I don't rush as I'm always looking for pictures too but to go up, spend time at the top and be down again before it was totally dark I'd allow six to eight hours depending on the time of year.

Is it hard to get up there? I would love to get a view like this when I'm on Skye the next time.

It's nit that hard to get this high. You can find the directions to climb Blaven quite easily on line. Go from the car park next to Loch Slapin at the base of Blaven across the water from Torrin. 
Allow all day for it. It gets very steep in places and right at the top you will need both hands to scramble up. Travel light and choose a good day. I have been up there in bad weather three times and that's not much fun. It's very exposed.
