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

By taking the right hand path we were able to get to the top. those along the more gentle left hand path might not have made it across as a recent rock fall

Small in height, big on personality (613m). Whilst once of the smallest hills in an area of smaller hills this needs to be visited if your in the area. For non-walker/climbers it worth seeing just to appreciate its striking shape from different directions. For those...More

This hike was incredible. You have the option of just skirting around the mountain or can hike up to the eastern section of the summit. (The views are worth it, just do it!)

This is a beautiful hike with easy parking and a well-marked trail. Absolutely worth walking - the trip took us a couple of hours and a reasonably good hiker could do the round trip in under 3. My only regret is we didn't go all...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
