Liathach on Fire...

The heather will grow back quick but not so good for the trees and rest of the plants of the forest-thats forgetting the animals too, i think some people have probably been pretty foolish getting caught on the hills in the fires, doesnt say much about it on the BBC but they shouldnt really have gone knowing there was a risk-putting rescuers in danger let alone themselves
Great report, enjoy the well earned rest!

Besides, these fires are nothing compared to what I've seen in my life

Fire raging on the low level ground near Inverpolly, between and just W of Cul Mor and Suilven. So many different fronts to the fires. Sitting having lunch I was watching the main front of one inch forward burning everything in its way (see last pic).

I was on Ben More Assynt & Conival on Monday, didn't see any fires. But I heard on the news a couple of days ago that we had the driest March for 50 years and the warmest April since records began... I guess that's why these fires appear.

All you needed was thunder and lighting and a tidal wave and it was biblical!!

Hoping to do this in August this year so your description of the route over the pinnacles is appreciated.

Concerns for authorities must be for those who think this sort of thing is great....and want to replicate the drama in other areas...............let's hope it doesn't happen.
Again well done with your effort.

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!!
