It is a great hill Doogz.

If I had a penny for every time I'd left the camera on some bizarre setting.....I'd have about enough for a bus fare :lol:

Still some great shots - the ptarmigans changing coats are great.

Cheers for that. 8)

Enjoyed your pics a lot. The first time I climbed Sgorr Dearg, me and my dog were lying in the hot July sun at the top and I heard singing (the way Yank soldiers do). I stood up to see a dozen or so soldiers, with packs, running up the mountain from the direction of Ballachulish and singing / chanting. They never even stopped, just kept on running down the other side and up towards Sgorr Dhonhuill.
