Suliven from Loch Druim Suardalain

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite mountains and I have only seen it from about 8 miles out. That said I have seen it from every side and in most weather conditions. I do think framing it from the Loch with the small tree island places it in a truly grand setting. Oh by the way I did say mountain but technically it is only a Corbet but with such a dramatic shark fin shape and steep slopes it deserves real consideration - enjoy.

  1. Lovely soft light gives just the right atmosphere that I love for the north west….and Pine Trees as a bonus. Always difficult to nominate a favourite mountain but anything north of the magnificent Torridon’s is even, in my view, more fantastic and a joy to behold….they are not a range of mountains but each individual character’s of the landscape. Up close they are great but also from afar as bumps on the horizon they excite, even from as far away as the eastern edge of he Flows.

    1. David , I absolutely love it up here I know all the well known stuff and I starting to explore a few of the more off beaten locations now. Caravan next so I can be there both early and late 🙂

  2. An incredible landscape shot, Scott, Loved it 🙂

    We could feel the depth here and the mountain is really inviting. But it’s a real tough ask I feel, to climb it, right?

    1. Sreejith – I will be climbing it this summer with my partner hopefully – but is a real long walk in. so we are getting our mountain bikes repaired to ease the burden 🙂

  3. I love the colour palette here and I’ve never seen Suilven from that angle. I love the way you’ve done this, with the reeds in the foreground, the trees and then the mountain catching the eye in the background. This is a real cracker, Scott.

    1. As I said to David – I am now starting to dig around the less obvious angles just need to seek out some more dramatic light although this was a great recce.
