SCOTLAND360° BLOG POST - THE TRAVERSE OF LIATHACH

A CLASSIC DAY ON ONE OF SCOTLAND'S FINEST MOUNTAINS

27th July 2008

July and the height of summer saw Tania, Mick and me heading for Liathach and the full traverse of arguably one of Scotland’s finest mountains.

The plan was to follow the classic route from east to west and the forecast for the day was certainly in our favour. Heading across to Torridon, Beinn Eighe was gradually clearing from an overnight covering of mist and the day was looking promising.

The photographs provide a short chronicle of a great day out.
