Scotland. on 08/18/2008 01:48:31 MDT Print View

It is Scotland aye, the shot is taken from the summit of Carn Dearg looking West. The cloud inversion is over Rannoch Moor and the hills in the distance are the Black Mount and the pointed one to the right of centre is Buachaille Etive Mor.
It's about 0600hrs and well below 0degC, a fantastic morning :o)

Here's another view of Buchaille Etive Mor and the heads of Glens Etive and Coe taken from Sron na Creise.

Roger: I wish that was the view into the Lake District from Cross Fell! Only 50 miles from my home rather than 400!

What time of year? on 08/18/2008 06:31:32 MDT Print View

Is that snow year round or seasonal?

It's seasonal. Some years we have patches on Ben Nevis high in the gullies and here and there in the Cairngorms but by August the snow is usually all gone.
It can still snow any day of the year on the high tops though, here's us trail running on Ben Nevis last June.

Pete: Didn't the Ben have a more or less permanent 'glacier' on the top until the late '70s?

I did the three peaks (highest tops in England Wales and Scotland) one weekend in 1978 in mid may and was trail breaking through thigh deep snow all the way up Ben Nevis. This and the slow minibus we were using put paid to our 24 Hour hopes, we finished in around 30.

Cream crackered afterwards I was. :o)

Rod: I took that shot of the Buachaille in early Feb 2005

Scotland again; on 08/18/2008 14:51:35 MDT Print View

Scotland offers so much to those who have yet to discover it. I thought IScotland again: would add to the contrubution from Pete and Rog.

is that a goldsworthy cairn in the first photo? on 08/18/2008 16:33:27 MDT Print View

Cairn on 08/20/2008 18:03:31 MDT Print View

No, it's just one of the better built ones. There's actually many nicely built summit cairns in Scotland, and a lot of shapeless pile of stones to offset it!

Here's another shot of the one above.

Here's one I took on Skye last week (I managed to get my 14 year old son - who is a genius but a total slacker - up Blahbeinn.Blahbeinn

And this is one of the hills around Loch Mullardoch )I forget which now, put could answer if required), taken last April.Mullardoch

Just the "Beating the weather competition", it's a Glasgowism for beating the odds :o)
