The Buachaille in morning light

Whilst getting ready to hike up the mountain the rain partially stopped and the clouds parted to let in a shaft of light that lit up the glen and landed perfectly on the Mountain Association building at the foot of the mountain.

You're right George, this scene is perfectly lit. It's an absolute cracker. I hope you had a good day on the hill.

Super shot, pity it's too late for the Landscapes Challenge! One of my favourite areas.

Re: The Buachaille in morning light

I went up a few years ago and fell instep with a Greek doctor who was working in a Glasgow hospital. I asked him what brought him to Glasgow and he replied that he was a cardiologist and that Glasgow was the "heart attack capital of The World". He said that it was because of drugs and alcohol and that he sees hearts of 20 year olds like that of a 70 year old!

The way the light reaches the small cottage makes it a great picture.

Unfortunately it didn't. It was worst on top with heavy rain and no views.

Talking Re: The Buachaille in morning light

The 'Mountain Association' building is Lagangarbh, the property of the Scottish Mountaineering Club. On the other side of the hill is Blackrock Cottage the property of the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club. I often wonder if they received a fee for every time their huts were photographed, how much money they would make.

Scottish Mountaineering Club is what I meant. Typed it quickly before I left for work this morning.

I think "hill" is maybe underselling it a bit.

There are no mountains in Scotland, there are only hills.
Elsewhere in the world Scotsmen can find hills over 8000m.

I have learnt over the years that this is all part of the natural Scottish euphemism:-

"The ridge is a bit airy" = knife edge with 3000ft exposure either side.

"It's a bit damp today" = torrential rain for last 48 hours with no sign of abating.

"It's fresh outside" = minus 18 and falling.

"A slight breeze" = storm force 11.

And so it goes.
