The photo above (Canisp to the left and Suilven to the right) was made from Loch Druim Suardalain and the one of Suilven below from the River Kirkaig. Visible from throughout the Assynt region Suilven dominates the landscape and is striking in appearance. One of the oldest rocks in the world, Gneiss, is visible on Canisp’s surface.
These photos are from a recent two week visit to Assynt. Based in the lovely town of Ullapool I photographed the mountains Suilven, Canisp, Quinag and Sàil Gharbh. I also photographed Loch Druim Suardalain, the River Kirkaig, Stoer Head Lighthouse and The Old Man of Stoer sea stack. Will be kept busy editing the results!
