Autumnal Rambles Among The Scottish Mountains
or Pedestrian Tourist's Friend by The Rev. Thomas Grierson, Minister of Kirkbean (1900)

Perhaps Scotland's most remote mountain peak as it sits very close to the point that is furthest from any road, I headed into Fisherfield (some call this area The Great Wilderness ) to climb three mountains and wild camping on one of the finest summits I have visited. There maybe more remote peaks depending on your definition but this was certainly a cracking and demanding trip to bag three of Scotland's remotest mountains.
