TGO Challenge, Lochaber update.

I’ve just spent the weekend at Blackrock Cottage walking in Glen Orchy, Glen Etive and Glen Coe. Conditions were cold and mainly dry with the odd sprinkling of snow. The ground was very dry and the rivers were the lowest I’ve ever seen them. There were even people bolder hopping across the River Etive rather than walking to the nearest bridge.

  1. Looks like you had a good trip Geoff, some great views. Interesting about the dry ground and low rivers, so this drought is even affecting high ground in Scotland.

    1. Yes Phill, it was a great weekend, there will be more pics and a trip report later.

  2. Cracking pictures, Geoff.
    You nicked all the good weather: Shrew move!

  3. Wow - stunning photos. You must have had a great trip.

  4. Thanks Mark. It was a great trip, I hope to write up a report in the next few days.
