Suilven Splendour

Assynt, Scotland

Suilven is one of the most distinctive Scottish mountains. It is made of Torridonian sandstone and consists of a 2km long knife edge ridge fringed by steep slopes. This was a cracking winters morning without a breath of wind. Vikings gave many mountains names and Suilven means "Pillar" as this mountain, from the sea, looks like a giant domed pillar rising from the flat landscape.
