Early Morning, Suilven, Sutherland - not available as greeting card

Early Morning, Suilven, Sutherland - not available as greeting card - Scotland
Although not a Munroe, Scottish mountain over 3000 feet, Suilven is one of the most distinctive Scottish mountains as it stands alone in an ancient and remote wilderness. For me this view looking north from Stac Pollaidh is simply one of the finest the British Isles has to offer.

Many times I have climbed Stac Pollaidh, often in poor weather and usually before sunrise, hoping for good light, knowing great views await me. On this trip I was privileged to watch sunrise two mornings running from high up on Stac Pollaidh and could marvel as this unique landscape emerged from the shadows - awesome. It seems almost untouched by man, it's as if the Ice Age glaciers have just retreated scrapping the land clean and leaving a few mountains to stand in isolation.
