    Wow, I climbed this munro in the 1970s and it was just mist all the way. Didn't see a thing. Think I'd be scared if I knew what sorts of drops were below

    There's really nothing in Coulin to rival Liathach, and you're never more than a couple of hours' brisk walk from the road, however the terrain is serious in places and the crags of Fuar Tholl seen here have taken several lives, including one last year.

    That's an excellent photo. I've yet to explore the Coulin parts. Is it as good as Torridon ?

Details for: Coulin and Torridon

The character of the West Coast mountains suddenly changes from high highland ridges to a much more rugged character. Dark red Torridonian sandstone now dominates the area. With spectacular sea lochs and high rising mountian around them this is arguably the finest area in the Scottish Highlands.

The Toridonian triptych of (Tom na Gruagaich and Sgurr Mhor) Benn Alligin, (Mullach an Rathain and Spidean'a Choire Leith) Laithach and Benn Eighe is regarded as one of the fines mountain ranges in scotland.
