Stac Pollaidh (Stac Polly) mountain is situated in the far northwest of Scotland, 72 miles northwest of Inverness, 15 miles north of Ullapool, off the A835 Road.

The Mountain is 2,008ft / 612 m, not the highest in Scotland, but one of the best looking due to it standing alone with a distinctive shape.

The Image top is from the main A835 Road about 8 miles north of Ullapool with a notice board giving information on the mountains in this area.

The second image is of the single lane tourist road that runs north to Lochinver, about 30 miles north of Stac Pollaidh.

The tourist road to Lochinver passes the Car Park for Stac Pollaidh as seen right.

The Mountains in this area are amazing, with erosion layers plain to see, great for photos or paintings. They look like mountains from the Western Films shot in Utah / America.

The Hike starts from the Car Park and follows a new path around the Mountain and up from the north. The original path straight up the south side is now not meant to be used due to erosion.

Once on top, there are a number of Pinnacles to explore with some of the best views in Scotland.

The highest Pinnacles are only taken on by experienced scramblers, as they are fairly difficult with high drops.

The 2,398ft / 731m Suilven is another stand alone mountain in this area that just has to be seen, photographed, of hiked.

On a clear day, from the top of Stac Pollaidh, you get great views of Suilven about 20 miles north, as the crow flies.
