North West Highlands Canoe Journey, Inverpolly
Inverpolly is located approximately 15km north of Ullapool, in north-west Sutherland. The site is nationally important for a range of habitats: upland vegetation, freshwater lochs, blanket bog and we plan to join these lochs as part of this journey.
Day 1 Elpin - Loch Veyatie
We plan to meet at Elphin where the open canoe expedition begins. Before setting off down Loch Veyatie heading to our first overnight camp, we discuss safety procedures and basic open canoe skills.
Day 2 Loch Veyatie - Fionn Loch - Ascent of Suliven
After breakfast, we load up our boats and set off down Fionn Loch towards the imposing peak of the mighty Suilven, where we have the opportunity to tackle this remote mountain by a route that very few people pass. We plan to camp close to Fionn Loch tonight.
Day 3 Fionn Loch - Loch Sionascaig
Today we portage over to the beautiful Loch Sionascaig; before heading for our wilderness campsite on a tiny island with extraordinary panoramic views of the surrounding mountains – arguably the most stunning campsite in Scotland!
Day 4 Loch Sionascaig - Ascent of Cul Mor
Canoeing to a secluded beach in Loch Sionascaig, we begin our ascent of Cul Mor through the lower flanks of the birchwood trees, here we have great possibilities of seeing some wildlife; particularly red deer which can be seen roaming across upper reaches of the mountains.
Day 5 Loch Sionascaig - Loch Buine Moire
We canoe northwards across Loch Sionascaig for a short portage into Loch Buine Moire. After a short paddle, we rejoin the vehicle and head to Ullapool for some well earned coffee and cake!
