Stack Polly and Loch Lurgain from the Achiltibuie road

This postcard shows a narrow road running alongside Loch Lurgainn, with the hill Stack Polly in the distance. The hill is known in Gaelic as 'Stac Pollaidh' and takes its name from the nearby River Polly, meaning 'river of pools'. It lies about eleven miles north of Ullapool in the Coigach district. Although not particularly high at only 2009 feet (613 metres), it has a distinctive shape and is popular with hill walkers.
