For hundreds of years, intrepid climbers, hikers and walkers have tried to scale the mountains of the Scottish Highlands, and its little wonder; the high country of this nation has some of the most beautiful vistas in the world, and the mountains are high enough for any cragsman.
Visit the mighty Ben Stack
Visit Ben Stack, a soaring peak in the Sutherland county, famous for its views of its sister-mountain Foinaven and Arkle. This is a great starter mountain for new walkers, because the ascent is short, but spectacular. Remember to bring sturdy shoes, because the terrain is boggy and pathless for most of the climb.
