This old tree was alleged to have been struck by lightning but personally I suspect that this was caused by repeated and acute freeze thaw cycles because intense cold is what Loch a Chroisg on the outskirts of Torridon is renowned for. I have shot this tree numerous times but this was the coldest morning I have ever experienced with temperatures dropping to -29 degrees Celcius. The tree is a little worse for wear these days.
