We were at the Orion Mountaineering Club dinner at the weekend and had a mass ascent of the corbett Sgurr nan Eugallt at the head of Loch Hourn. The road over Glen Garry was quite bad with the snow and it was down to one lane at the viewpoint. We’d also had a near miss with a gigantic stag just before Clunie but we were going slow due to the snow and had time to brake and swerve to avoid it. Superb specimen it was too.
Anyway, we made it to the Tomdoun Hotel for the dinner and we all had a mass ascent of Sgurr nan Eugallt. Wading through, in places, waist deep snow. There was even some ice here and there. The amount of snow on the hills was incredible. here’s a pick of Loch Quoich from Spidean Mialach (I think) that a friend took the same day:
As you can see there’s a lot of snow for November in Scotland!
