Fisherfield 'Big 6' backpacking

In the north-west of Scotland, the areas of Fisherfield and Letterewe are reckoned to be one of Europe's last wildernesses. This is a quiet area tucked behind Slioch and An Teallach and for the most part hidden well from roadside view. The mountains contained are very inaccessible and their isolation necessitates a long walk in, with careful planning and overnighting.
