Standing in serene isolation, in a remote part of northern Scotland, there is something uniquely enticing about Suilven. A journey inspired by Hemingsworth.
With the arrival of Autumn, our first AW ICONS ORIGIN Collection has been released into the wild. It’s a collection for sportsmen, globetrotters and adventurers. Every piece is crafted from the finest materials so you can travel in comfort and luxury while trusting that you are equipped for the long-haul.
Inspired by the possibilities of the AW ICONS ORIGINS Collection, we have chosen four adventures around the world.
The first time you see Suilven from afar, the challenge of this monolithic wall of rock rising from the wilderness below is irresistible. At 731 metres, Suilven’s height is far from impressive. However, standing in isolation in a wilderness of moorland and lochs, the mountain makes for an unforgettable sight. Carved into a teardrop shape by the movement of ancient glaciers, the Suilven’s main ridge is surrounded by near-vertical cliffs on all sides. Even reaching the base of these cliffs requires a hike of several miles over rough ground, navigating a maze of peat bogs, rivers and lochans.
The summit, once you reach it, is broad and flat. The mountaineer is rewarded with uninterrupted views of the moorland and the sea beyond. This is the type of environment that the Ice Breaker gilet is built for. Providing unmatched warmth in a lightweight garment, the Ice Breaker has the toughness and practicality that this Scottish wilderness demands, along with the level of comfort and luxury for which Heminsgworth is famed.
