Beautiful pictures - stunning skies!

What a pity you didn't have time to do the ridge, but it gives you an excuse to go back! When I did Meall nan Tarmachan I'd planned to do the ridge too, but as I had to navigate through a blizzard to get to the summit I decided that carrying on would be pointless - I like to see things...

Your pictures have reminded me that I need to return there, and it's great to see the views I missed - thanks!

Sarah your pictures are terrific! I particularly like the last one, to remind us we're still in Scotland...

I'm saving this walk for the winter months.

Thank you everyone for the lovely comments. It has been one of my favourite walks and we were very lucky with the conditions.
