Looking west from Toll Creagach in Glen Affric - early January

Glen Affric is a long drive from Glasgow, especially in early January when there isn't much daylight. However it's also very quiet at that time of year and is worth the journey. Clouds skimming the summits further up Gleann nam Fiadh

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.
