Great weather you had for this one David, nice photos.
Visited Torridon area last year and do like the look of this hill, can't wait to tick it off. :)

Nice report. Love the fisheye shot, I do like fisheyes :D I'm off to Torridon tomorrow (I came up here to to escape the Jubilee too :D ) so I think I'll add this one to the list. Don't tell my legs :D
