An Teallach from Ben More, Coigach

This postcard shows a view of the hill An Teallach from the hill Ben Mor Coigach.

An Teallach, whose name means 'the forge', is a group of peaks between the heads of Little Loch Broom and Loch na Sealga. The lower slopes are of Torridonian sandstone, while the summits are topped with white quartzite. It has two Munro peaks: Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill (3484 feet, 1062 metres) and Sgurr Fiona (3478 feet, 1060 metres). A Munro is a Scottish mountain over 3,000 feet, so called after Sir Hugh Munro who listed such mountains in 1891.

Ben Mor Coigach ('the big mountain of Coigach') rises to a height of 2437 feet (743 metres) in the Coigach area, north of Ullapool.
