Haven’t had a chance to post about this as we’ve been so busy over the past month!
Anyway, for the last week in August we spent some time in the Highlands bagging some hills. We went up to the Fannichs, Ben Wyvis, and then spent a few days in the Cairngorms.
Peaks included were: A’Chailleach and Sgurr Breac (Fannichs), Ben Wyvis and Sgor Gaoith, Monadh Mor (Cairngorms).
Here are some photos…

Our lovely weather for the first two days didn’t last. We had two days of hill fog and rain once we reached the Cairngorms! Wild camping wasn’t as pleasant as it usually is!
