An Teallach is a mountain in Scotland. It lies to the southwest of Dundonnell and overlooks Little Loch Broom, in an area often nicknamed the “great wilderness”. An Teallach means ‘The Anvil’ or ‘The Forge’ in Scottish Gaelic; although most scholars claim the latter is most correct as the mountain’s name refers more to the colour of the terrain in certain lighting conditions, rather than shape. The mountain is mostly made of Torridonian sandstone. Like the peaks around Torridon (for which the rock is named), An Teallach has terraced sides riven with steep gullies and a sharp rocky summit crest. The steepest section, known as Corrag Bhuide, rises above Loch Toll an Lochain. Corrag Bhuide’s most spectacular feature is an overhanging pinnacle known as Lord Berkeley’s Seat. Sorry about the quality, taken from a VCR of the shows taped off TV. Can we please get the series released on DVD, as it has been deleted ie Can’t buy it in the shops!
