To be camped on top of A' Mhaighdean in such rare and magical conditions must count as the experience of a lifetime. The seemingly endless cloud seas look almost like glacial ice. The photos are stunning but of course give only a hint of what the reality must have been like. Sublime. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Phenomenal, Collaciotach. The photos are amazing, the reality must have been something else. These ones will sure live long in your memories of the munros.

I think we need to know the correct steps for the weather dance you obviously performed before this magical experience..... What a stunning part of this Earth.
After getting that view from A'Mhaighdean last summer I vowed to come back and do a camp up there one day. Bucket list.
Many thanks for sharing.
