My ninth visit to Stac Pollaidh I think. Not great light for photography it seems but turned out well on video. Made a mental note to point video camera down as well as horizontally as my experience of 2010's eighth visit was that pointing ahead simply didn't do the hill justice what with its many gullies and great views down to the road and the lochs around. Weather forecast for this ninth visit was, if I recall rightly, for a clear morning with cloud building from mid afternoon which was exactly how it turned out. The cloud seemed to help the video camera a lot.
