The pictures were on the news; Trail Magazine have contacted me also; they want to include an article in their next months issue...
It's an epic mountain - Liathach - some fabulous conditions over the last two weeks - and some great reports from everyone - Scotland at it's very best - I have to go away to India for a couple of months; will miss the hills so please keep these reports coming; I'll be missing the munros!!

We in the antipodes are very much aware how dangerous an approaching bushfire is.
All hillwakers should pay particular care to the use of fire and cooking equipment - making sure that all fire is in a cleared space, preferably 3 feet either side; that all fires if lit are absolutrely extinguished before leaving them - preferably covered with soil or extinguished with water.
Australia suffers dangerous bushfires annually - the last 2 years ago with severe loss of life (173 people dead), significant injurues, losses of homes (about 2000) and huge loss of endangered flora and fauna.
The thought of the Scottish mountains and moors being obliterated by fire is a major concern.
Please care for the environment which gives you so much pleasure, contentment, challenge & clean air. Love it and protect it & PLEASE DO NOT WALK THROUGH BUSHFIRES!!!!

- The bigger pines on the other side of the Glen road remain untouched!
