Jeanie heading up some open slopes on Emel Ridge.
The crags ahead provided the crux of the route. We had to pitch a section of steep rock and turf.
Jeanie nearing the top of the steep section.
Jeanie on the final slopes leading to the summit.
Looking towards the northern buttresses of Beinn an Dothaidh. Emel Ridge is fairly central in this picture.
Stuart on the summit of Sgurr na Sgine.
Jeanie on the ridge leading towards the outlying peak of Faochag.
On the Sunday we went for a shorter walk up the Corbet Sgurr Mhic Bharraich as the weather was forecast to deteriorate. This picture shows some lovely light & colours looking towards Sgurr a Gharg Gharaidh. A sprinkling of new snow overnight.
A lovely view of Jeanie with the Kintail hills behind.
A view from the col at Loch Coire nan Crogachan, looking towards Sgurr Mhic Bharraich.
Weather starting to close in with an approaching frontal system over Beinn Sgritheall. This was our last day on the hills this weekend due to a very poor forecast for the Monday. We had a very leisurely Monday.
