Suilven may be only 731 metres high, but its remarkable outline make it one of Scotland's best known and most easily identified mountains. Its position in the heart of Assynt's cnoc-and-loch landscape and superb views make it one of the finest peaks in Britain.


Tracks and hill-paths throughout by the route described; the climb to the ridge is very steep. Very simple scrambling on the ridge.
