The north-west has some of the most stunning mountains in Scotland containing beautiful ridge walks and great rock climbing. Winter climbing is available depending on weather conditions.
Reiff consists of several geos giving routes of 5 to 25 metres on good quality sandstone. Grades go from difficult to E7. There are probably at least 300 routes spread along 5 miles of coastline. A great place to climb with a lot of starred routes.
Within a twenty minute drive from Reiff is the familiar shape of Stac Pollaidh (pictured above). Although not a dfficult climb it attracts many visitors each year and has a sizeable parking area at its base.
Mountain and climbing guides can be bought locally from North West Outdoors in Ullapool.
There are many outdoor activities available in this unspoiled area. Cycling and walking around the Coigach peninsula affords many
fine views of the coastline and the Summer Isles. You can try your hand at sea-fishing by hiring a boat for the day (Ardmair), and there is a yachting school based on Tanera as well as numerous beaches
and coastal walks to explore.
