Those who like to go walking in the Scottish Highlands may benefit from the involvement of conservation group the John Muir Trust in a project to enhance and protect the environment in the Assynt-Coigach area.

In an email to supporters, the Trust has spoken of how pleased it is to be involved in the Coigach and Assynt Living Landscape, which aims to restore woodland and peat habitats in the region.

The body noted this could help species such as golden eagles and wildcats, which visitors heading up with their hiking boots may enjoy spotting.

It described the region as "one of the most stunning areas of wild land in the UK" and visitors may enjoy walking there both for the visual quality of the landscape and a chance to tick off some mountains.

Assynt-Coigach has two Munros in the form of Conival and Ben More Assynt, as well as Corbetts such as Cul Mor and Cul Beag.

However, its best known mountain is a mere Graham at 2,399 ft in the monolithic form of Suilven.

An ascent of this peak was featured in the Griff Rhys Jones series Mountain.
