The road to Assynt

Looking through some pictures, I came across these, taken in February 2006 on a weekend of very fine weather.

Cul Mor is reflected in a hill lochan.  A great hillwalk from Knockan, it can be extended to include Cul Beag, a long but rewarding round of two Corbetts.

The first thrilling view of Suilven (norse: Pillar Mountain), the improbable shape rearing up over the Lochinver road.  Suilven is peculiar in that it looks startlingly different from different directions.


  1. Amazing first image. Unfortunately, I have never had the opportunity to take my car this far north. It looks momentous to catch the great sight in the second photo.

  2. Thanks J!

    It was one of those weekends when the light was so good that most images worked. The first sight of Suilven from either the inland road or from the sea at Lochinver never ceases to thrill; it's a hill with true "presence"
