The Kinloch River and Ben Loyal

Ben Loyal is an isolated mountain of 764 m in Sutherland, the north-western tip of the Scottish Highlands.

It is a Corbett located south of the Kyle of Tongue, and provides good views of the Kyle, Loch Loyal to the east, and Ben Hope to the west.

It has a distinctive shape due to the four rocky peaks, the highest of which is called An Caisteal.

To the north of An Caisteal is the 712 m Sgòr Chaonasaid, to the south is Bheinn Bheag (744 m) and to the west is the ridge of Sgòr a Chèirich, 644 m at its highest point. The fourth peak is the 568 m Sgòr Fionnaich.
