Can easily see why this mountain is rated so highly! Climbed it last Wednesday, sunny enough, but the wind was a bit too blowy to really enjoy it and revell in the ridge walks...took the escape route round the back of the pinnacles, but would have been madness to go near them that day! Definitely one I would do again, and the feeling looking up at it from the road at the end was just pure elation!

Need to get up there myself, been all around and love looking at your photos and seeing the other mountains that I feel I know so well. Liathach next, then start again and explore further off the usual paths. Hope you get a lovely calm day for your return.... :D

Thank you for the great comments, was unable to finish Beinn Alligin on another day up there, so will definitely be back in the area again, and maybe take on the pinnacles if i've had my porridge in the morning :D

Lovely photies there ntz. Especially like the fourth last and the last one. Is this the most photogenic mountain and region in Scotland? Can't wait to get round to tackling the hills here.
