North of Ullapool, the hills of Coigach dominate the landscape, with Cul Beag being one of the first encountered. The little mountain belies its modest height with an impressive stature rising above Loch Lurgainn.

The most direct route starts from the shore of Loch Lurgainn where a journey of only 2.5km reaches the summit. You could opt to end your hike here or more satisfyingly continue onwards on a superb longer route that also takes in Cul Mor and visits some stunning scenery on the way.
