1 Day Walking Adventure - Quinag and a Magnificent Ridge Walk Day Excursion

Our partner: Mckenzie Mountaineering - Guided Walking Adventures

0 reviews


Quinag is an 808 m high mountain range in Sutherland with just a 45-minute stunning car journey north from Ullapool.

It’s not a single mountain but a dramatic range of peaks called Sàil Gharbh, Sàil Ghorm, and Spidean Coinich in Scottish Gaelic. This translates to the rough heel, the blue heel and the mossy peak. Owned and looked after by the John Muir Trust.

Quinag is unusual in offering the general walker no fewer than three separate mountains over 2,500ft (Corbetts) a tour of all the summits is a fairly major undertaking. This means that this is no easy day out if you tackle all three. This is why we only take two mountains into our route for the day to make it more achievable for most.

Your effort will be well rewarded with breathtaking views over Loch Assynt to the south, Conival and Ben More Assynt to the south-east and Loch a’Chàirn Bhàin.
