Our drive north to Sutherland took us past some old-favourites: Stac Pollaidh and Suilven

After two nights at the Eddrachilles Hotel we headed for Tongue Hotel, and on the way we climbed an old favourite

As we climb higher the view opens-up: on the horizon the islands of Lewis and Harris

Ben Stack is not very high, but it does have a true pointed summit and spectacular views
