Thanks Rockhopper. Yes, that was really beautiful winter day there. Actually, my second winter walk, approximately week after my first snowy walk on Schiehallion...and I loved it! :wink:

Lovely photos Andrea - the last one is a nice contrast to the 'snowy peak' ones too :D

It's a great hill for a clear winter day like that - hopefully you'll get a few more :)
