Midday on 28th January 2001. This is the view from near the summit of Ben Wyvis looking south-west along the ridge towards the Strathfarrar hills. The walk north-east along the ridge was mainly below a thin sheet of cloud that periodically thinned enough to get a view. The hills to the west; Fannichs, Beinn Dearg, An Teallach were under dark cloud all day, but to the south and east the cloud was well broken. The particular lighting conditions gave rise to the cool blue colour of the summit plateau.
