Again this is a simplified and stylised image that seeks to capture the essence of this mountain ridge rising to the highest point of the summit ridge, Ganu Mor.
It is an image too that hopes to convey the exceptional remoteness of this place, but a place not withstanding its remoteness that commands an unique panorama. Suilven and Quinag look so small to the south and uniquely one can see both Orkney to the north east across the Pentland Firth and the Cuillins hills on Skye to the south west. While to the west across the Minch one can see past the Butt of Lewis, the most northerly point of the Hebrides, out to unbroken open ocean.
