NC2329 : The Skiag

taken 13 years ago, near to Newton, Highland, Great Britain

The Skiag
The Skiag
Looking out across the square towards the West. Although Quinag at 808 metres dominates the view it is around 3 kilometres away and well outside this grid.

In the foreground can be seen the long sweeping bend on the A894 as it climbs the steep hill pass known locally as the Skiag

The A894 climbs from around sea level on each side of the pass to around 260 metres in about 4kms, with this last km being the steepest and most exposed to winter storms.

This is the direct road link South from the North of Assynt and Southern Eddrachillis.

Beyond the road lies the moorland around the upper reaches of the Unapool burn.
