A few miles north of Ullapool, Cul Mor is an impressive mountain of Corbett status guarded on most sides by crags and corries. Its sits in remote Inverpolly above a heather-clad landscape pitted with many lochs and lochans.

The most direct and straightforward route is from Knockan Crag, around 5km south-east of Cul Mor's summit, where a stalker's path leads most of the way.

A more interesting and longer route combines Cul Mor with Cul Beag and begins from Loch Lurgainn. Much of this route is away from paths, but the extra effort is rewarded by some stunning scenery and hidden lochans with crystal-clear water and beautiful beaches.
