Hiking on the peaks around Loch Quoich

The mountains around Loch Quoich sit on the edge of The Rough Bounds of Knoydart and afford fantastic seaward views to Skye and beyond from their summits. Grassy slopes rising above the loch lead to high crests with precipitous craggy drops. Most of the access is on fairly good stalker's paths, built well before the construction of the dams.
