Beinn a'Chuallaich

Traditional Christmas hillwalk with Douglas. An atrocious mountain forecast meant chosing a tiddler but we found excellent light and views between the clouds at car level and the clouds at the summit - a day that hugely exceeded expectations.

Not a promising start... but she who dares....?
