The Hills are Bare

24th January 2017

We are now in a warm, moist airflow from the South with strengthening winds, varying amounts of cloud and insignificant precipitation. This will persist for a couple of days before it cools, but staying mainly dry for a few days more. Good news for rock climbers! Following on from the Golden Eagle sighting yesterday (see Torridon Blog 23-01-17), today I drove below an immature Sea Eagle scavenging along the shoreline of Loch Broom. Sorry, no out of focus photograph this time.

Inversion cloud rolling over the higher summits of the Fannaich mountains.

The bare mountains of the Great Wilderness; Slioch is the mountain behind the loch (Loch a’ Bhroin) and An Teallach on the right.

The southern aspects of the three Munros; Beinn Dearg (L), Cona’ Mheall (C background), and Am Faochagach (R)

Looking east to Loch Glascarnoch and Ben Wyvis on the left background, Beinn Liath Mhor Ghiubhais Li on the right.

Our own ‘Parallel Roads’ on Am Faochagach?
