I’d spent a couple of days at Gerry’s hostel at Achnashellach, when it started to snow heavily with clusters of flakes the size of a fist thumping into my head. Though pretty to look at the snowstorm carried on through the day and into the next morning. As it finally eased I set off for a moorland peak that I knew would be safe from avalanche. At 600m it offered views into the snow capped mountains in several directions, but none so stunning as this view into the heart of Torridon as the clouds finally retreated. The steep wall on the left is Liathach, and the peak on the right is Beinn Eighe, with Beinn Dearg sitting in the background. From the photo I produced this oil painting sized 30×20 inches on board.
