Pap of Glencoe

Pap of Glencoe (Sgorr na Ciche) (742m / 2434 ft), Glencoe, Scotland

This is the first summit on the hiking route up to the famous (or notorious) Aonach Eagach ridge. Although not a munro, it commands a great view over Loch Leven, the narrows at Ballachulish, and north to Ben Nevis and the Mamores. And as you’re climbing from close to sea level, it’s as good a climb as many munros in the Scottish Highlands!

It’s amazing some days when you just roll out of bed open the curtains and see a site like this, I just jumped out of bed grabbed the camera, well I got dressed first (didn’t want to scare children etc) and took a few shots, it was over all too quickly…but what a sunrise.


Heavy freezing rain here today, glad I’m in doors with plenty to do, now how do you work the heating thingy?
