After getting back down off Cul Beag, the weather seemed to be holding and the sun was back out over nearby Knockan Crag, so we headed here to try out the Crag Top trail. I'll leave the photos to tell the story but it's a fantastic little circuit: great views accessed by a good path (though still with quite a bit of ascent), and loads of interactive info panels etc. to learn about Assynt's geology.

And so concludes our week in Ullapool! A wonderful area for walking, and the weather was a lot better than we'd expected (though departure day - the next day - was a washout). Time to start planning 2019's trips...
