At the end of a round of Coire Lagan. We'd just come off the Pinnacle and a passing walker grabbed the chance of a rope to help his ascent of this tricky top. After a mainly sunny and calm day the clouds were moving in and the wind atop the pinnacle was getting slightly disconcerting.

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.
