Munros from Coigach to Cape Wrath

There are only four Munros in the far north-western corner of Scotland. Ben More Assynt and Conival rise a few kilometres east of Inchnadamph; they are both remarkably barren, rocky mountains whose upper slopes and ridges are covered with quartzite screes and boulders which give very rough walking. Thirty kilometres north-east of Ben More Assynt is  Ben Kilbreck, which lies on the east side of Strath Vagastie and is easily accessible from the road between Lairg and Tongue. Twenty five kilometres beyond it is the other solitary Munro in Sutherland, Ben Hope. This is the most northerly of the 3000ft mountains of Britain and it rises steeply above Loch Hope, within sight of the north coast.
