The view from the summit of Cùl Mòr across Loch Mheathadaidh (Veyatie) to the Assynt peaks, Suilven, Cuinneag (Quinag) and Canisp. This photo was taken shortly before sunset on an evening in early July, with the sun low in the north-western sky.
The grassy summit plateau of Cùl Mòr is strewn with boulders, both of Cambrian quartzite and, as can be seen in the foreground of this photo, of weathered Torridonian sandstone.
This is a truly remarkable spot, at the heart of the magnificent country of Inverpolly and southern Assynt. It was a rare privilege to be completely alone in this place at the day's end, with my refuge for the night in a tent pitched at the col below the north ridge of Cùl Mòr.
