Arkle and Ben Stack from Scourie Road

This photograph shows the conical, pointy peak of Ben Stack which stands to the west of Loch Stack near Achfary in Sutherland. At a height of 721m (2365ft) it isn't a Munro (Scottish mountain over 3000ft) but it is still a popular hill with walkers due to its moderately easy climb and the fact that both the main summit routes are accessible from the A838 road.

The mountain on the left of the photograph is Arkle which stands at 787m (2582ft). Arkle is made up of quartzite sitting on top of Lewisian gneiss.
