UK’s Top Hill Walks: Stac Pollaidh

Stac Pollaidh

Stac Pollaidh, Northern Highlands

2 miles/3 hours

A hike this far that takes less than a morning? Of course. An eroded rock stump that is located in the waterlogged coastal Northern Highlands, Stac Pollaidh offers a box-seat to the most breath-taking view in all of Britain: the vista to the wild north, where odd hills like Suilven, Canisp and Quinag line the horizon. COnsider it less as a must-do hike, and more as the trigger to a life of coming back to this place for more. And regardless of its modest size, it maintains an air of celibacy: to reach the very top, you have to be happy with Grade 2 scrambling, which – let’s face it – most of us aren’t.
