Liathach & Beinn Eighe

© Gavin Shaw 2003

14 September 2002. It was a struggle to gain the motivation clamber out of a warm sleeping bag in the pitch dark around 6am, but I had the feeling it was going to be a special morning. Over a period of a 2 - 3 hours I watched the first light appear over the Fannich hills to the north east, then gradually spread across the Torridon hills, here illuminating Liathach and Beinn Eighe. The low mist cascaded steadily over the east end of Liathach, by the Coire Mhic Nobuil path, before accumulating and evaporating in Upper Loch Torridon.
P.S. Can you spot the tent?
