Guided circular route on Suilven

Suilven is a spectacular mountain in the North-West Highlands. The most westerly peak in Assynt, it dominates the surrounding area. From the west and above the village of Lochinver its westerly rounded summit, Caisteal Liath, is affectionately known as the 'Sugar Loaf'. But head nearer and its shape changes dramatically with a long crest stretching across a middle peak, Meall Meadhonach, and ending abruptly on Meall Bheag.

We're here in this wonderful area for some fine hiking on well defined paths and ome easy scrambling to reach the main summits on Suilven's ridge. We'll also take a circular route to vary our day.
