Loch Hope and Ben Hope

Loch Hope lies to the east of Loch Eriboll in northern Sutherland and is linked to Loch Eriboll by the River Hope. The loch is known for its sea trout fishing. To the east of Loch Hope stands Ben Hope. It is Scotland's most northerly Munro (a Scottish mountain of over 3000ft) standing at a height of 927m (3041ft). The mountain is triangular wedge shape and is mostly rocky terrain but plenty of Alpine flowers grow on its slopes in the right season. The name comes from the Gaelic for 'hill of the bay'.
