Wester Ross proper includes a number of
of such high profile that they deserve seperate treatment - Kintail,
and Affric among them. This web page, then, is dedicated to those parts
of this vast area not already covered elsewhere. It includes Loch
Glen Carron and Strath Bran; the Fannaichs, the Fisherfield wilderness
north of Loch Maree, the coast around Gairloch, Loch Ewe and Gruinard;
and Loch Broom, Ullapool and the surrounding area including the Deargs.
It includes some thirty Munros, among them such famed mountains as
Dearg, An Teallach and Slioch. Ullapool is the area's main settlement
there are many villages and scattered townships such as Poolewe,
and Strathcarron, as well as strategic localities such as Achnasheen
Aultguish which often as not are just an inn and a road junction. Most
of Wester Ross is empty semi-wilderness, little visited and little
It's magnificent, and would take a lifetime to get to know.
