Aonachs and Grey Corries completed on June 19th 2010 by members of the Scottish Hillwalking group. A warm dry day with a stiff little 25mph breeze. Fantastic views of the Mamores and North Face of Ben nevis.

Below is a video of our day....watch this in 720p or 1080p, and in full screen. If your connection can handle it, as vid is HD.

Great pics in the video, certainly got good weather that day. Those Grey Corries do look strange, why are they like that?

I have no idea, sorry.

Having hills of many shapes, sizes and colour justs adds to the allure of them.

Cuillins in Skye are just awesome, with black jagged rock formations spouting everywhere.
