The three munro summits of Sgurr Fhuaran, Sgurr na Carnach and Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe taken from Shiel Bridge on a fresh Tuesday afternoon, 3rd April 2012. Many of us were across these mountains just three days early with no snow during the Walkhighlands Spring Meet. Great tales and memories to share...:)
