These are “smaller” mountains, between 2000 feet (610m) and 2500 feet (761m) high and with at least 500 feet of descent on all sides. .
They are named after Fiona Torbett (nee Graham) – she published her own list of all of them.
There are 224 Grahams across Scotland, most of them in the Highlands.
The most well known of these is Stac Pollaidh (often called Stack Polly). There are good views of Sgurr Tuath across Loch Lurgainn below, and of Cul Beag to the east. There are also stunning views of Suilven
across the wilderness of Assynt. As Stac Pollaidh stands alone in a relatively flat landscape, the views from here are breathtaking. To the southwest the summer isles are easily visible and to the north the Point of Stoer
with Suilven and the long waterway of Loch Veyatie to the northwest.
