Just a few miles north of Ullapool, on the north shore of Loch Lurgainn, stands one of the most remarkable mountains in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. A mere 'Graham' of 612 metres in height, it is one of the most picturesque summits in Scotland, and rightly a magnet for visitors. Stac Pollaidh consists of highly eroded Torridonian sandstone and features numerous steep gullies and rocky pinnacles.
