Lochnagar didn't look anything like that when we were up there!
The world would be a much happier place if everyone looked at pictures like these. Congratulations indeed... absolutely blew us away.
Im planning on heading to Cac Carn Beag myself sometime soon hopfully.

Would also suggest lens/camera be as waterproof as possible!
The lens is a Canon EF-S 15-85mm IS USM. This isn't one of Canon's pro quality L series but it is a step up from the kit lens you usually get with the 550D. It was/is a kit lens for the semi-pro Canon 7D. I use a Lowepro top loading case which I wear on my belt (a Rezo TLZ 20 - don't get the Cirrus TLZ 15, mine fell apart after 6 months). Means you have to keep your belt well tightened but it's dead easy getting the camera in & out. Has room for spare battery, memory cards, some basic cleaning bits & a polarizing filter. Copes with light rain & snow but if it gets heavy the whole lot goes in the backpack.
And thank you all again, especially Torridon_snails - you are too kind
