A grand westward view from one of the lower hills across the glen from Liathach. I was walking along the high ground back towards our base at Torridon YHA after work and was treated to this fine view and interesting optical effect. A small cairn in the foreground and a map consultation of my old OS OL Sheet 8 and my memory makes me think this was taken from the western end of Seana Mheallan. However, it is a long time ago and I may be mistaken. I also found, when searching for images of Seana Mheallan that the hill is the title of a folk song by Andrew Cronshaw. His notes about the song indicate his dog thought considerably less of the hill than either of us!
The flat-topped hill on the right of shot is, I think, Beinn Alligin and the body of water is Upper Loch Torridon, the upper part of the sea loch that was gouged out by glaciers flowing down from the surrounding hills.
