The tour "3 Days / 2 Nights - Assynt Mountain Adventure" starts from and ends in Ullapool. This is an adventure trip that takes 3 days taking you through Ullapool, Ullapool and Cul Mor in England and Scotland. This is a guided group tour that includes accommodation in hostels, transport and others.

The Assynt Mountain Adventure starts in Inverness. After a pick-up in town, we transfer you via the beautiful village of Ullapool to the start point of our walk-up spectacular Stac Pollaidh, a stunning ridged mountain with a rocky crest and iconic stature.

After completing our circuit, we return to Ullapool for 2 nights in your chosen accommodation. The village is in a lovely position beside Loch Broom, offers regular folk music, and serves up an abundance of fresh seafood in its friendly pubs and restaurants.

On day two, we drove the short distance to begin our ascent of the magnificent twin summited Col Mor. The panoramic views from the top of this mountain, which is the highest in the area, are simply outstanding, with extensive views of the summer isles in the Atlantic and across the lochan-dotted landscape to the surrounding mountains.

Before returning to Ullapool, we have a short stop at the small Knockan Crags Nature Reserve interpretation Centre, where you can learn about millions of years of the fascinating geological history of the area.

On day three, we take the lovely circuit walk up onto local Ullapool hill, which overlooks the village and includes a section down to the mouth of Loch Achall and some beautiful river falls, before transferring you back to Inverness for your homeward journey. A fantastic introduction to the amazing mountains of Assynt!
