View from Dining Room Window.

Hi All,

Took this the other day from my just out side my dining room.
Can't wait to get some decent light I might stand a chance of getting some half decent images.
But just using the E5 is a treat.

Re: View from Dining Room Window.

That's got to be one of the best dining room views in the country! Even in less than ideal light it's magnificent and at least you can see the tops of the Cuillin. Once spent a week with Gerry Ackroyd scrambling all over that ridge in thick cloud and rain. Great sense of steepness but little sense of exposure when you can't see anything! Do you know if Gerry's still a guide on Skye?

Re: View from Dining Room Window.

By my reckoning you must live in Drynoch or Glen Drynoch as I see Sgurr a Mhadaidh, Sgurr Thuilm and just the tip of the Inn Pinn.
It all looks a bit raw at all levels.

Somebody earlier mentioned your website. Do you have a link?

Hi Zuiko, thanks for the compliments.
Not sure about John Ackroyd but a good mate of mine is on the Mountain rescue Team so he's bound to know.

Hi Duncan,
9/10 for your guess work. I actually live in Glen Eynort.
I think Sgurr Thormaid is in there as well somewhere.
Net time your passing drop in for a cuppa.

Yes, I've paid a visit to this site and it's well worth a look. Jon's forthcoming book on Skye looks especially interesting.

Hmm, I'm losing the knack.

I used to spend a lot of time about 30 years ago climbing the Cuillin and staying just over the hill at Portnalong in a friend's caravan. Last time I passed there was a hacienda on the site.

My father met my mother in Glen Brittle about 60 years ago. He climbing, she had a summer job in Gideon's Tearoom. As a gentleman the first date was up Sgurr Mhic Coinnich. He proposed to her on Sgurr na Banachdich. And my middle name is Alasdair, I wonder why?
And somewhere there is a photo of me aged 2 'rock climbing' on a rock outcrop at the beach in Glen Brittle.

And don't talk to me of summer Friday evenings racing for the last ferry over from Kyle.

What a fantastic view. Two words spring to mind... 'gobsmackingly awsome.' Needless to say, I'm green with envy.
