Most beautiful peaks of Scotlands - I need your help
by czubaka » Sun Feb 05, 2017 12:03 pm
My name is Lukasz Czubak. I’m a mountain and outdoor blogger, journalist and copywriter from Poland. Two years ago I walked Skye Trail, and since that time I have been in love with Scotland, Scottish culture and landscape! This year I’m going to visit the Highlands at the beginning of May. My plan is to cycle from Glasgow to Cape Wrath and then back south through Inverness and hike 5-10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PEAKS OF SCOTLAND.
And my question is: what are - in your opinion - the most beautiful peaks of Scotland? Please name 5.
I’ve got my favourite one, but I need the opinion of people who know Scottish mountains and are experts on that subject matter.
Thank you very much for your help! Greetings - Luke
PS. Do not include Ben Nevis and Cuillin - I’ve been there .

* are my photos, I have stolen the others from other people.
The Skye ridge might be a little difficult logistically, as you have to go across from Skye, but you can get a very good view of it, weather permitting from Blaven, or from Sgurr na Stri which is a small, perfectly formed hill from where you can see them all.

1. Beinn Alligin (Torridon)
2. Slioch (Letterewe)
3. Ladhar Bheinn (Knoydart)
4. Suilven (Assynt)
5. Cir Mhor (Arran)
6. Beinn Dearg Mhor (Fisherfield)
7. The Saddle (Glen Shiel)
8. Garbh Bheinn (Ardgour)
9. Ben Lui (Tyndrum)
10. Stob Dearg (Buachaille Etive Mor)
But then I've missed out Ben Starav, The Five Sisters of Kintail, Beinn Dorain, Schiehallion and countless others. Impossible!

Can't be bothered to post a photo, get up there and see for yourself

For that moment my list looks like that - going from the south:
- Ben Lui
- Buachaile Etive Mor
- Aonach Eagach
- An Teallach
- Stac Pollaidh
- Ben Stack
I was thinking about Cairngorms but probably I will have enough time ;(
It's hard to choose!

Part of the attraction of any mountain is the hill itself, and another part is the view you get from it: Sgurr na Stri has in many people's opinion the best views in Scotland; I love Beinn Eighe because of the views it affords of Liathach. And yet another part is when it forms part of a ridge with spectacular views...
Stob Dearg (via Curved Ridge)
Bidean nam Bian
And there are many many others I haven't yet been up, but whose portraits make them look amazing - eg
Beinn Dearg Mor
Hope you have a really excellent time

Unlike many hills , many of us can see it at sunrise without travelling
