Spring in Scotland can be a great place to be. This shot was taken during a traverse of the Grey Corries in March last year. On the first night, we walked up Glen Nevis in the dark and camped at Steall Falls, this time under an amazing starry sky. The next day, as the sun rose, we continued up Glen Nevis, meeting two men coming in the opposite direction from Dalwhinnie to Fort William who asked us, "Have you seen a black and white collie? We lost her a few days ago. No? No worries, she'll follow our scent eventually'. (No idea if she did!).
We kept on walking, past the small top of Tom an Eite, and climbed up onto the Munro, Stob Ban. From there, a steep down and up saw us reach the summit of the next Munro, Stob Choire Chlaurigh, and the start of the Grey Corries ridge proper. We camped not long after, just off the ridge after the descent from Stob a'Choire Leith. The temperature overnight dropped to -6 degrees C and it was great to be up early the following morning. The fine weather continued and we spent the day traversing the remaining Grey Corries peaks - Stob Coire Cath na Sine, Stob Coire an Laoigh, Stob Coire Easain, Sgurr Choinnich Mor and Sgurr Choinnich Beag - before we descended back into Glen Nevis beneath two of the Aonach Beag outliers, Sgurr a Bhuic and Stob Coire Bhealaich (the two peaks you can see on the left and right of the picture above). All in all, it was a great 2.5 days out.
