Another great set of Ben Alligin pictures. Got to be amongst the best views anywhere in Scotland.

Bob, that's one fantastic report and set of photos. It's so lovely to read of your heart-felt appreciation of the hill and surroundings. Hope you'll be back soon with your camper-van!

There really aren't adequate words to describe that report. Your photos are spectacular. I think anyone would be proud to have those hanging on their wall at home. All of them! :D
Wester Ross has a special place in my heart too.

There's really no place on earth to equal Scotland, is there?

Your photos do a good job of selling Wester Ross as the best bit of the country :D . My preference changes from week to week, but around Torridon, Strathcarron and Letterewe have long been some of my favourite places. Being able to get to places like this in an hour or so was a big part of the reason I moved to Inverness 8)

If you're ever looking for a lodger, just let me know... ;)

Cheers everybody, it does mean a lot to me that people enjoyed that report; it was really from the heart and I couldn't have written it any other way,
