Ben Loyal viewed from the west end of the bridge over the Kyle of Tongue, 21 April 1997.

It's amazing just how quickly the Scottish weather can change. Just two days previously, Ben Loyal didn't have a speck of snow and was basking in warm sunshine (see thumbnail 2-up). The day prior to the above photo, the weather started to take a turn for the worse with low cloud and winds gusting to 50mph on the summit.
