Peaks of the Far North West

Earlier this month we drove up to the far north west of Scotland. It was the first time I had seen the magnificent peaks of Assynt in close proximity.

We had planned to hiked Stac Polliadh at the end of the first day, but the weather had turned and we were both pretty tired, so decided if the next day was better then we would do it. Unfortunately, my other half was fighting a cold and with a four hour drive back home in front of him, we decided to do a couple of shorter walks. As soon as we can get back up, we shall be doing Stac Pollaidh!

Despite low cloud, we did manage glimpses of Suilven, etc. I took the following photos between 5.30 and 6.30am!
