Stac Pollaidh

Featured photo of Stac Pollaidh

A brilliant, small spiky little mountain. It has a most distinctive look. It may only be 613m but has a really craggy top that requires a bit of a scramble to reach. And has a bit of exposure to reach the actual summit which is another 300m west.

Its popularity is in the fact that it can be climbed in a couple of hours from a car park by the edge of the nearest road.

From the summit the views over the mountains and the lochs are superb with Suilven to the north being especially prominent.

It could be climbed at anytime in the year, but looks great with it's winter coat on.
