You will be able to find more information underneath each walk on this ‘Grahams around Ullapool’ page. A popup window will open up with more info, availability, price and times when we run this walk.
The Grahams are the mountains in Scotland between 2000 and 2500 feet high, with at least 150 metres of descent on all sides.
We are offering some fantastic 1-day walking adventures. Ideal for those wanting to get out into the hills around Ullapool and further afield with a qualified mountain leader providing a safe and fun day out.
Included is transport from Ullapool with meeting at the Royal Hotel Ullapool car park. We offer another meeting point at the start of the walk for most walks. A lot of our walks are linear and two vehicles are a must with two drivers. We offer this and this is planned into our pricing.
Each walk is confirmed from 4 clients onwards if we cancel any walk because of not reaching the minimum we will refund in full.
Ben More Coigach from West to East
Ben More Coigach dominates the landscape north of Ullapool and it`s long, table shaped summit plateau is an ideal mountain to master in a day.
The best route is a linear route to experience all the features this striking mountain has to offer. With 743 metres (2438 ft) it seems fairly straightforward. But this walk is steep in places, off-path offers some airy ridges (can be bypassed if needed).
The views are worth this effort and there are not many better days out than this to the north of Ullapool. To the north and east side, you have the lonely giants of Assynt and to the west and south, you have the mighty mountain chains of the Fisherfields, Fannichs and An Teallach.
Walk details: 7 miles, 11 km – Ascent 620 m, Descent 730 m – Walking time 4h
Suilven with a cycling and walking approach
This is a very exciting way of climbing this magnificent hill. Instead of having a long walk in and out for the ascent, we will cycle in, leave the bikes at the bottom of the big steep ascent and walk to the westerly summit Caisteal Liath for breathtaking views all around.
The return is on the same route we walked up and cycled in. With this approach we make a long day walking wise much more enjoyable and allowing more time for breaks.
An iconic day gets even more epic by combining two outdoor activities, cycling and walking. You can bring your own bike or hire one through us with the help of Ullapool Bike Hire.
We offer this day entirely as a walking trip as well on either the same dates or separate.
Walk details: 3.2 miles, 5 km – Ascent 515 m, Descent 515 m- Walking time 3 – 4 h
Ride details: 9 miles, 14.5 km – Ascent 115 m, Descent 115 m – Cycling time 1.5 h
Walk up Stac Pollaidh for a magnificent view
Stac Pollaidh (also known as Stac Polly) is possibly the best-known mountain in Coigach and Assynt Scotland.
612 m high, Stac Pollaidh may be a small mountain in comparison to many of Scotland’s bigger hills, but offers incredible views of the mountains of the Inverpolly Nature Reserve and across to the mighty Suilven. This mini-mountain punches well above its weight.
Climbing the hill is relatively simple thanks to the well-made steep path up to the bealach (pass). We will walk the circular route which will take you around the base of the pinnacles.
Walk details: 2.75 miles, 4.5 km – Ascent 470 m, Descent 470 m – Walking time 2.5 -3 h
Suilven walking approach
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
