This mighty monster dominating the north side of Loch Maree has long been a target of mine. The anticipated views along Loch Maree and out to the western isles required a clear day, so after three days dodging the rain in Torridon, the forecast looked good so we took our chances and headed off up to Kinlochewe.Image
