A few photos from the Ben Alder area

DSCF6955

My trip to the Ben Alder area this week was a success!

There was plenty of snow when I left Corrour Station on Wednesday morning, but the weather was pretty good and I succeeded in climbing the Munros Carn Dearg and Sgor Gaibhre before spending the night at Ben Alder Cottage.

Perfect white, sunshine, and silence on Carn Dearg

I’ll be publishing a full account of this particular mission elsewhere, so for now here are a few of the photos I’ve kept back for my own personal use. It was a great trip and I feel very privileged to have experienced this brief window of excellent weather in a long run of storms and thaw.
