Explore the wild and beautiful regions of Assynt and Coigach in the North West Highlands.
Located just to the north of Ullapool, the hills and lochs create a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. The hills have a regal and distinctive feel as they rise boldly from the moors, each peak with its own place on the otherwise loch-strewn landscape. The coastline is just as memorable, as picture-perfect sandy beaches are interspersed with rugged cliffs and sea stacks.
So unique is the structure of this landscape that it was the first area in the UK to be designated a UNESCO Geopark, which marks its geographical significance and heritage.
Although many of the hills which we may climb on this trip are below 3000 feet, it is certainly one of the most spectacular mountain areas in the Scottish Highlands. We will enjoy a combination of hill, glen and coastal walks, allowing us to experience all aspects of this wonderful region of Scotland.
