Up in the Clouds on Foinaven
I went for a two-day walk over Foinaven recently. I didn't have time for sketching and the midges were too bad to stay in one place for long, so I only have photographs and memories from the trip. The weather wasn't as good as I'd hoped for, so I was in cloud for much of the time. I'll definitely go back in better conditions sometime.
The walk in along Strath Dionard.
It soon got very boggy.
There were some good examples of the amazing geology of the area.
Getting up into the mountains now.
Deer. I told them to keep their heads down now that the shooting season has started!
Up on the ridge.
Lord Reay's Seat.
A mountain shelter on Cadha na Beucaich.
Still more climbing to do.
The cloud cleared for some views down into Coire na Lurgainn.
Heating soup on the summit.
Off the mountain and across the moors.
The Kyle of Durness.
