Outstanding images, and lots of effort put in to get them.

The views from the hills of Assynt are the best anywhere when the weather plays ball. Shame about the wind, but it probably adds to the memory of an epic trip.

Last time we were there we cheated - we paddled in by canoe and wild camped by Fionn Loch. An amazing experience.

Amazing photos :shock: I have a question though about hiking up Suilven: is there any scrambling involved before reaching the ridge itself?

Not really any scrambling. You climb where the shadow is, and it looks formidable from a distance, but on the right you can see the view looking down, and although we were glad of our poles, we never really used our hands.
