Canoeing and hillwalking in Britain ’ s great wilderness

By Mal Grey – www . wildernessisastateofmind . co . uk The two mountains of A ’ Mhaighdean , The Maiden , and Ruadh Stac Mor , the Big Red Peak , are among Britain ’ s remotest . By international standards , they ’ re not remote , being just six miles in a straight line from any road , yet the terrain surrounding them is wild and unforgiving , and the lie of the land prevents any possible straight lines ! Here lie some of Scotland ’ s best mountains , hills for the connoisseur , rewarding the considerable effort needed to reach them .
