Slioch in Sutherland is considered one of the classic, photogenic mountains, featuring in most calendars. It's one of several peaks that rise dramatically from the low-lying rock, bogs and lochs of the North-West of Scotland.
This is the latest contribution to the site by Richard Johnson, a member of the Easy Walking Group. This walk, however, was undertaken with a group from the Black Rock Mountaineering Club from Aberdour in Fife.
