Is there a wild place in Scotland you've always wanted to visit but never found time to go? Mark Stephen kicks off a new series on Out of Doors this week called One Place I've Never Been, with an ascent of one of Scotland's most beautiful mountains, Suilven in Assynt. But after a tiring kayak across two lochs to the foot of the mountain, can he actually reach the top?
