18th June Cul Mor

On the way to Cul Mor

Assynt in the far North West of Scotland is jaw-dropping, the landscape is so outstanding and other worldly that you’d think you’d travelled to another planet.

One of the highest peaks in Assynt, Cul Mor’s rocky summit offers beautiful views and a window into the history of how the surrounding landscape was formed. Cul Mor, meaning ‘big back,’ rises from Knockan Crag to the east to overlook Loch Sionascaig and the neighbouring peak Stac Pollaidh to the west.

Despite its higher altitude, it is less well known than two other neighbours, Suilven and Stac Pollaidh. However, being higher, it commands views over these and other neighbours and extensive stunning views out to the Summer Isles.

Walk details: 8 miles, 13 km – Ascent 670 m, Descent 670 m – Walking time 5 h

19th June – Suilven

This is a very exciting way of climbing this magnificent hill.

Suilven may be only 731 metres high, but its remarkable outline makes it one of Scotland’s best-known and most easily identified mountains.

Its position in the heart of Assynt’s cnoc-and-loch landscape and superb views make it one of the finest peaks in Britain.

The return is on the same route we walked up.

Walk details: 12 miles, 19.5 km – Ascent 750 m, Descent 750 m- Walking time 6 – 7 h
