Meaning “peak of the peat moss”
Referred to as Scotland’s miniature mountain, Stac Polly is the quickest and easiest ascent in the area. With incredible views over the Inverpolly Nature Reserve, Loch Lurgainn and the iconic Suilven, Stac Polly has become very popular with climbers of all abilities.
After a short, steep climb, you can enjoy one of the best places to watch the sun go down, and photography lovers will enjoy capturing the last moments of the sun as it slips away behind the Assynt mountains.
This gem of a mountain can best be described by imagining one of Terry Gilliam’s amazing Monty Python cartoons. Imagine the hand of God reaching down from the heavens and ripping the top off a mountain - the raggedy top of Stac Pollaidh is exactly what would remain on the ground.
