 About the Book 

The old counties of Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland, and Caithness, forming Scotlands north west peninsula, contain some of the countrys most spectacular scenery, and boast many of the most shapely and challenging hills in the British Isles. StackMoreThe old counties of Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland, and Caithness, forming Scotlands north west peninsula, contain some of the countrys most spectacular scenery, and boast many of the most shapely and challenging hills in the British Isles. Stack Polly, Suilven and Ben Loyal have been favourite postcard peaks for generations and many visitors come to the far north just to enjoy the unique scenery with its knobbly gneiss moors, jutting peaks, rugged coastline and unspoilt communities.For these visitors, the far north provides almost endless possibilities. Attractions include boat trips to interesting offshore islands with impressive sea cliffs and colonies of sea birds, fascinating antiquities tracing Scotlands history from stone-age man to the shameful clearances, and a number of low-level scenic attractions such as Britains highest waterfall and some of the best beaches in the UK.For the more adventurous visitor, the hills offer a wealth of challenging and enjoyable outings, from simple half-day walks to demanding multi-day expeditions, and all in the most wild and lonely terrain that Scotland has to offer.
