Absolutely stunning photos!!! :clap: :clap: A great walk report too as I felt like I joined you on it there, all of the major "bits" of the walk covered and what a view of the Cuillin ridge, breathtaking!! (in fact the views all around, wow!!)

Hopefully some other peeps were up there at the same time and will post similar photos from Skye looking back towards Nevis! :D

Nice one, some cracking views there today. :D :D
I was on Ben Ime and Ben Vane took much cloud through out the day. :(

What a stunner of a day. Great to see such clear views of the Ben's awesome north face. And that's an amazing shot of the Skye Cuillin! :shock: :clap:

Tower Ridge next time then?

I am in the process of writing up a report for the same walk from Sunday, not quite as good as yours... but still beautiful :) Here is a sneak peak of Todd leading us out over the ridge :)

Incidentally, I avoided the tourist route on the way down by heading off to the Munro Top (Carn Dearg??) - there are then the makings of a path over the rocks down to the lochan, skirting around the top of the Castle. Not to be recommended in bad weather!!
