Stac Pollaidh, Highlands
'High peaks abound in the Highlands and reaching their summits often involves serious all-day expeditions,' warns David. 'However, the mountain of Stac Pollaidh ('Stac Polly') is relatively easy to experience, while still offering spectacular views across an endless maze of land and water. A popular circular walk starts at the car park on the edge of Loch Lurgainn, north of Ullapool, and follows steep paths on a short but stunning loop of the mountain.'
