A brief return of the sunshine (posted by James)


The magnificent view to Braeriach from the summit of Sgor Gaoith

Just three photos to prove that the sun is still capable of shining in the Highlands during this (so far) rather grey and damp early summer. I have some rather raw skin after being well and truly roasted on the Cairngorm plateau yesterday, with a very hot sun and stiff breeze blowing. My friend John and I did the long walk between Mullach Clach a'Bhlair and Sgor Gaoith with possibly the clearest visibility I've ever seen in the Highlands in summer.


Unbroken sunshine in Glen Feshie, surely one of the most beautiful places in Scotland


Lush countryside near Beinn a'Ghlo, South Eastern Highlands


But by the look of the forecast, back to showers tomorrow!

  1. The bird you saw on top of Mullach Clach a'Bhlair may have been a juvenile Golden Eagle.
