Suilven from Canisp summit

This photo was taken on a walk to the summit of Canisp. Although not as distinctive as Suilven or the Quinag, its peak is higher than both, and the views from the top are stunning with views far up the coast of Sutherland on a clear day..

The walk is pathless and 8 miles of boggy ground and rocky patches. It is the first Corbett that we have managed after several years of walking and a fine place to start!.

On the day we did the walk, we had fine weather right to the top at which point it started raining. We stuck it out though and eventually got some pictures from the peak. Further rain on the way back hampered any photography on the return journey.
