Beinn Alligin

One of the best known of the Torridon summits, Bein Alligin...
...seen here from across Loch Kerry on a brighter day.
After a bleak start, the clag lifted above the summits, prompting a change of plan from low level, to high level route.
The Horns of Alligin, beyond the only level ground on the ascent of Tom na Gruagaich.
Looking down on The Horns. Perhaps rather 'over egged' by the walking guides, these pinnacles do offer some easy scrambling but any real difficulties are easily avoided, in summer conditions at least.
Looking across the Shieldaig Forest toward the dark flanks of Baosbheinn.
The descent from The Horns is unremittingly steep...
...until at last one reaches the burns below...
...where several waterfalls provide a fitting conclusion to a day of superb ridge walking and two Munroes traversing Beinn Alligin: the Jewelled Hill or Beautiful Mountain.
