Best 3 mountain days in Scotland
Standout Scottish mountain climbs have been:
- Suilven in Lochinver at dawn. The view out towards the Outer Hebrides is breathtaking- well worth leaving Lochinver at 3am to witness the sun rising.
- The summit of Ben Lawers in a classic temperature inversion in January. At -20 degrees the surrounding snow covered peaks were beautiful, followed by an awesome ski descent.
- Arverikie Wall on Binnein Shuas, Loch Laggan. A modern classic, rated severe; challenging and spectacular. Watching peregrine falcons around their nests from the final belay, in the sun, gives a sense of wonderful isolation.
