Wild Moment: Chris Puddephatt

Published: 20th July 2018

"I’ve decided to walk around Quinag on the 1000ft contour and take some snaps..." The Assynt-based photographer shares his latest project

Ever since I completed my three day ramble up the Unapool Burn, I’ve been conscious that I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and wanted another one.

Quinag is one of my favourite mountains. It has a three-armed summit ridge, and very different landscape on each side. I want to get to know it better.

Looking at a map, I realise there is only one rocky crag that seems to block the way for a walk along the 1000 foot contour, about 305 metres in new money. Apart from the bit near to Ardvreck, it looks like it's possible. Guess it’ll take a few trips, so it's likely to take several months to complete...
