Walk Up Stac Pollaidh for a Magnificent Sunset One-day tour

Our partner: Mckenzie Mountaineering - Guided Walking Adventures


Stac Pollaidh (also known as Stac Polly) is possibly the best-known mountain in Coigach and Assynt Scotland.

612 m high, Stac Pollaidh may be a small mountain in comparison to many of Scotland’s bigger hills, but offers incredible views of the mountains of the Inverpolly Nature Reserve and across to the mighty Suilven. This mini-mountain punches well above its weight.

Climbing the hill is relatively simple thanks to the well-made steep path up to the bealach (pass). We will walk the circular route which will take you around the base of the pinnacles.

Our biggest highlight is that we ascend in the evening before the light fades, watch an ever-changing sunset at the bealach or eastern summit. Before finishing the route with an adventurous descent in the dark with head torches if needed.

Walk details: 2.75 miles, 4.5 km – Ascent 470 m, Descent 470 m – Walking time 2.5 -3 h
