Stopped at the side of the road to take in the views and we were not disappointing by them. There was a map and information in the car park that showed all the peaks as you looked forward. Would love to come back one day...More

Drive towards the summer isles and the views are like watching Lord of the Rings. The mountain views are just like a fairy tale. Lochs and mountains all around and they all look impossible to climb.

You can get a great view along with surrounding mountains coming into Ullapool on the ferry. While this is not a particularly high mountain, the view of The Minch, Islands and surrounding mountains is quite spectacular, especially with snow on the tops.

Three of us walked up here on Thursday. As mountains go, it isn't very high but it isn't a simple ramble up a hill. If the weather is fine, its ok. However if its been raining previously then it can be slippy or boggy and...More

Excellent walk. Brilliant views and a bit of exercise to boot. You need reasonable footwear and clothing but is a straight forward introduction to walking

This was a good climb up and with the incredible views from the top that even the rain couldn’t spoil. It’s quite steep up and down and the circular route can take different routes in places. The car park is very small but it’s worth...More

Stac Pollaidh is a beautiful hike, but can be moderately difficult to the summit and gets steep at times. There are two main trails - one more difficult than the other, so be aware of the elevation gains on the trail map near the trailhead...More

This is our favourite walk in the Coigach region. A circular walk up to the top viewing area can be done easily in 4 hours - but take your time to explore and enjoy the views over to the Summer Isles. The paths are well...More

An excellent walk but be prepared for a lot of steps up and down - there are no flat bits. The first part is steps up through bushes and trees and then you emerge onto the lower mountain. The clockwise route would be steeper and...More

This is an astonishing place, nothing else in the world that I have seen, from the Himalayas, to Yosemete to Nepal and the mountains of Kenya come close to the astonishing shapes and feeling given off from this mountain area. It is a single track...More

No, but the fitter you are the more it will help. It's a fairly short hill by Scottish terms, but is steep in places. Also if you look to scramble to the true summit being fit an nimble will be helpful, but not essential... More
