Go Further!

A spell of more settled, frosty weather has brought with it a series of stunning sunrises and sunsets in the North West. This picture was taken today looking South East along Little Loch Broom, Dundonnell. The peak on the right is Mac is Mathair which is part of the An Teallach massif – the most dramatic mountain on the Scottish mainland. Sometimes spelt Mac ‘us Mathair this unusual Gaelic name means ‘Son and Mother’ in English. Some local people think this explains the title ‘An Teallach’ because ‘teallach’ may derive from the Gaelic word ‘teaghlach’ which means ‘family’. Nearly all mountain guide books, however, reckon An Teallach means the ‘forge’.
