Earlier on today I was joking about taking Thursday off because the weather is due to be like this. Now I'm going to have to see if I can because I really fancy a wander over to Loch Avon in these conditions 8)

Lots of great photos there despite the camera phone (must be annoying when you want to zoom in on something). Stacan Dubha is a nice little summit, as are so many of the other little bumps.

Thanks Malky. Yes, any wildlife close-ups were out of the question today.
