Carn Liath in the mist
23rd January 2019
(Above) Clear and frosty nr Kingussie this morning; blue skies even! Though a cloak of mist hung low in the glens when travelling further west to Creag Meagaidh. The car park this morning, with a tantalising glimpse of broad, sunlit uplands beyond.
(Above) The east end of Loch Laggan with the rounded hills nr Gaick and Drumochter enjoying a relatively cloud-free day by the looks of it. Reasonable but generally thin cover of snow above 650m today.
(Above) The gate at 800m on the ‘main drag’ up to Carn Liath. Haven’t featured this anachronistic gate in the blog for ages. A throwback to a time when there was a fence all the way up from Aberarder to the boundary of the estate on the Carn Liath plateau. (A few old iron fence posts still visible). Often wondered, ‘Why here?’ when passing it. Don’t think there was a shieling or similar in this spot back in the day. A curiousity, then. Anyway, as a courtesy to passing walkers I left the gate open to ensure unhindered access for one and all.
