Arkle and Ben Stack from Loch Inchard

Arkle is a mountain in Scotland, situated in the far north-west corner of the Scottish Highlands. Like many of the monolithic mountains that surround it, the mountain is made up of quartzite on a bed of Lewisian gneiss. The quartzite, being tougher, resisted erosion of the surrounding gneiss.

Ben Stack is a mountain in the county of Sutherland. It is 721 metres (2365 feet) high. It is located southeast of Laxford Bridge and northwest of Loch More and the town of Lairg, along the A838 road, and just west of Loch Stack across the A838.

On 6 August 2005 former U.K. Foreign Secretary Robin Cook died after collapsing with a heart attack while climbing Ben Stack.
