Review and Tips
Canisp is one of the spectacular Assynt hills. The easiest way to the top is from the lay-by of the road A837 past the Ledmore junction. There is a visible path from the car park which leads over the bridge to the moorland. Be careful because this part is very boggy and is hard to walk in wet weather. After few miles, the path ends. Go up through the stony ground and you can't get lost. When the stony ground ends there is a visible path again and the views start to be stunning with Assynt hills on the left hand side. The top can be easily reached in 3 hours. From the top, you can see Suilven, Cul Mor, Stac Pollaidh and Quinag. Canisp is a fine place with excellent views. Canisp is 847 meters high and is one of the Corbetts.
