Stac Pollaidh

Over to the west coast today, for some good weather and spectacular scenery in the Assynt-Coigash National Scenic area.Its hard to get a scale on these hills, they are smaller up close than you would think, impressive nevertheless.The land here is very barren Torridonian sandstone. Not hard to imagine this whole area covered up in the last ice age. The hill was not the easiest of walks either, the rock is quite crumbly. The coast has some cool fjords too, mostly to the north.

So it's not all pasties and pubs after all?
