17 October 2003. The classic view of Blaven and Clach Glas across Loch Slapin. The wide angle view also takes in An Stac, Garbh-bheinn, Sgurr nan Each and Belig. The cottage at Arincreaga is reflected in the loch.

I took this photo mid-morning on my way round to Elgol prior to returning to Kilmarie to begin the trek up Blaven's south ridge. My morning began at sub-zero Sligachan where I had to shake sheets of ice off my tent. It was a beautiful drive across the island from Broadford with all the vegetation an autumnal golden brown.
