Looking down to Loch Creran  from Beinn Sgulaird - late November

The cloud lifted just long enough to get sight of the loch. A day with soft early season snow on the tops.

I make no claim to technical excellence for any these images, many were snatched in a hurry or taken on mobile phones and others scanned from old negatives or prints. They are here because they remind me of many great days in the mountains and in the hope they might tempt others to get out and spend some time in Scotland's fine wild places.
