The Mountains of the North West Highlands
The Mountains of Ben More Assynt, Conival and Suilven offer some sensational and challenging walking, with exposed scrambling along mountain ridges. Unless you are an experienced walker or mountaineer we would recommend that you hire the services of a local guide to climb these rugged and dramatic peaks. The Information Pack we provide includes contact details for locally-based guides.
