The Mountains of Assynt

The mountains are not for the most part so steep as to require rock climbing techniques. You can reach the summits by walking. However, they are not all readily accessible and, in most cases, you face a long walk just to reach their foot.

The time required varies from two hours to round about eight hours.

More information is available from the local Tourist Information Centre. They can also supply you with forms on which you can list your itinerary and planned time of return.

Before you set off, you should fill in the form and leave it with a responsible person, just in case!
