Missed this first time round - I have been looking at this area for quite a while and if I can capture half of what you did in those photos, one will be very chuffed. Well done.

Great report , did the 3 Munros in July '08 on a cracking day and also got some great pics, but the peaks stand out so much better under snow, will have to go back soon for some Corbetts

Cheers

I ascended in August and I still dream of Sgurr na Ciche on a regular basis ... an absolutely fantastic mountain (and ridge) ... wonderful to see it in the snow! I'm so jealous!
