Pictures and words by Andy Main

Torridon 2008

Just thought id add a few words to go with Andys awesome pictures from our Easter trip

After Wills notoriously unreliable car lost its rear spring as we passed Drummochter we sat around all friday drinking tea and waiting for the mechanics to do there stuff. This let the worst of the weather pass and we arrived in torridon on a glorious evening.

After waking up to a hail storm and horrendous winds we indecisively buggered around and eventually decided on a walk up Sgur Ruath (below) and Fuar Tholl from Glen Carron. A long day with broken sunshine and some ace bumsliding! also scoped out some sweet looking ice lines for another year

The weather then tricked us into camping another night but by the time we got back to the tents it was the normal mix of rain, hail, snow all on the back of 40mph winds - perfect camping weather! But morale held on (somehow!) and the next day started the same but we were determined not to let indecision creep in and by the time we had gainned the Horns of Alligin the snow had stopped and an Eagle flew by to tell us the weather was gonna be fine!
