Ben Nevis - the CIC Hut from Tower Ridge - Summer

The scale of Ben Nevis is impressive and best appreciated from the corries and ridges of its northern face - here looking down at the CIC hut (2200ft) from part way up Tower Ridge. The day ended in the mist with the sound of the bagpipes drifting down from the summit - a first for me.

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.
