Some morning mist in Gleann Lichd.6.30am, 04/05/02~ I was making my way up the glen for a northerly approach to the Sisters when this strange mass of cloud began to pour over the col from Glen Affric, like a scene from an apocalyptic Hollywood film, The Fog perhaps.
Sgurr nan Spainteach from Sgurr na Ciste Duibh.
~ This shows the notorious false ridge which if followed in poor visibility will lead the unwary steeply down into Gleann Lichd, where most people don't really want to go. Instead, a few yards from the foot of that scrambly step (the only such one on the Sisters ridge), drop down to the left, into a curious little hollow, on the far side of which the true ridge continues.
Loch Alsh and Beinn na Caillich.
~ I normally leave things like Eilan Donan Castle to the professionals, but this seemed to merit an exception.
