In the North-West Highlands of Scotland lies Assynt – a walkers’ paradise. Here you can climb mountains, follow coastal trails, find hidden waterfalls and explore ancient caves.
The real beauty of the area lies in its barren ruggedness and open vistas; here iconic peaks rise proudly from the moorland. As majestic as they seem many of these peaks are not even Munros (Scottish Mountain Classification: over 3,000ft) and, in fact, the whole area only has two – Ben More Assynt & Conival. You’re more likely to be tackling a Corbett or Graham, but this landscape isn’t about munro-bagging, instead it offers walkers an abundance and diversity of walking options. It’ll keep drawing you back because there is always something more to explore.
