Inverpolly - Cul Mor, Cul Beag and Stac Pollaidh

Cul Mor, Cul Beag and Stac Pollaidh sit in Coigaich which holds some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland. These hills stand isolated above the peat land and lochans and although none of them reach Munro height, they all have very individual character.


Main route summary


Cul Mor and Cul Beag are rough hills and hide a beautiful 'lost valley' with a lochan and beach. These hills are gained by using old stalkers paths and easy green lines up steep heather clad slopes.

The dramatic Torridonian sandstone stump that is little Stac Pollaidh shows the extent of severe weathering on rock. This is a very accessible hill and over recent years new paths have been constructed to curb the errosion. Stac Pollaidh details are in 'Alternative Routes' below.
