Ben Cruachan and Stob Diamh circuit yesterday with a cloud inversion and a Brocken Spectre followed by the clearest days and views Iโ€™ve ever had in the hills. If only I had the camera equipment to pick up the fact we were stood so far west and could see the snow topped Cairngorms in the East, Nevis, Mamores, Grey Corries, the Western Isles, Rannoch Moor and so much more! Also, thereโ€™s something I absolutely love about either a walk in or a walk out in the dark (with a head torch obv!) with yesterday being so worth it for the sunset views to the west over the Cruachan Reservoir. But where has winter gone?! Only some tiny bits of ice but zero snow on the hills of the South West Highlands which meant the crampons and ice axes and winter boots were not needed yesterday ๐Ÿ˜ž

Choices, choices!! Sup board or climbing gear?  On a bright sunny January morn it had to be one of these two.  I couldn't make up my mind so both kits went into the car and two and a half hours later I found myself at Lochawe in Argyll where the bright sunshine and snow on the hills persuaded me to don my walking boots and backpack and head off towards Ben Cruachan with my camera.  At 1126 metres I knew the snow would challenge me and it did.  Crampons and ice axe were needed to get up through the narrow gap between Coire Dearg and Ben Cruachan.  Should I have taken the easier route? - probably but the satisfaction of getting the job done this way was much greater.  I expected cold up high but was surprised to find one of my water bottles frozen - that's a first!  The views were fantastic even if muted slightly by a haze. #bencruachan #bencruachandam #hiking #hikingscotland #hillwalking #hillwalkingscotland #hillclimbing #snow #snowpeaks #icecaps #mountain #mountains #munrobagging #munro #coiredearg #lochawe #argyll #argyllandbute #visitscotland #canon5dmarkiv #canonphotography #outdoorsman #outdoorworld #passofbrander #cruachanreservoir #cruachandam #challengelife
