An Teallach

On 17th March 2013 By

An Teallach seemed very quiet yesterday. Kenny and I both had the feeling that we were the only people in the coire and on the mountain. This may well not have been the case, but we didn’t see or hear a soul all day. Along with the peace and quiet, we enjoyed Hayfork Gully (I) […]

On 5th February 2011 By

Here are a few more pictures of our remarkable early winter. Temperatures plunged so low that most of the Ardessie Falls (Dundonnell) froze including most of this section not far from the road. The ice at the foot of this fall was about 14 inches thick, covering what is usually a beautiful deep […]

Long Winter

On 2nd May 2010 By

After a couple of weeks of milder weather in March the winter returned with another long spell of calm high pressure and bitterly cold temperatures on the summits. This lasted well into April when these pictures were taken during a winter round of An Teallach.

Here the group is approaching the rounded summit ridge of […]

This great shot was taken in mid-February during Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team training on Beinn Dearg. Not only does it give a good impression of the scale of this peak it also shows the extraordinary dyke that runs from the tip of the North West Ridge (in the distance) to close to […]
