Pathway To Ruin

An Teallach, Dundonnell, Scotland.

The climb up An Teallach is fairly arduous and not terribly exciting lasting the best part of 4 hours. The first bit being relatively flat and enclosed in a boggy valley. It is only in the last few yards that you get some inkling of the reward for the effort you put in. Frankly it will blow you away, your jaw will drop to the floor and you will be rendered completely speechless. The view is in my humble opinion the finest in Scotland. On this occasion I camped at the top, took advantage of the sunset and was spellbound at sunrise. Pity I forgot me matches and couldn't have a brew at the top.

Your work never ceases to amaze me Ian. Also amazing is the fact you camped at the top.. I can still see snow and ice!
Still...makes me want to return home to Scotland.
