An Teallach from Loch Droma

An Teallach

An Teallach is one of the most distinctive and popular mountains of the Scottish Highlands. Its distant and jagged ridge is a familiar sight to those travelling between Inverness and Ullapool. In translation An Teallach appropriately means ‘The Forge’, a name fully justified if one is fortunate enough to witness the first rays of the morning sun light up its steep terraces of red Torridonian sandstone.
