Foinaven, Arkle and Ben Stack from Badcall near Kinlochbervie

Foinaven is a mountain in Scotland, situated in the far north-west corner of the Scottish Highlands.

Arkle is situated in the far north-west corner of the Scottish Highlands. Like its sister Foinaven, the mountain is made up of glistening white Cambrian quartzite, laid down around 530 million years ago on an uneven basement of much older Lewisian gneiss.

Ben Stack is a mountain located 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.

Badcall comprises two hamlets, Lower Badcall and Upper Badcall. They lie near to the coastline, next to the Outer Hebrides islands. Badcall is located 2 miles (3 km) south of Scourie, which is on the west side of Badcall Bay, and Lower Badcall to the east. There are the remains of a former fish station and fish farming is an important local industry.
