Coigach Mountains, Head of Loch Lurgain, Achitibuie

Coigach is the peninsula north of Ullapool, in Wester Ross in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. It abuts Assynt further to the north.

Like its more northerly neighbour, it is an area of astonishing but stark beauty, with mountains rising sheer to dizzying heights from quiet lochs.

Achiltibuie and its smaller adjoining hamlets form the parish of Coigach, a traditional crofting and fishing community of a couple of hundred houses sprinkled between mountain and shore on a peninsula looking over the Summer Isles and the sea.
