Phantoms in the mist

A Brocken spectre forms on mist below Conservation Cairn on the Torridon mountain path.

THE Torridon mountain path that starts from the Coille na Glas Letire car park on Loch Maree-side is a challenging circuit for walkers not used to steepness. It has the added benefit of providing access to Meall a' Ghiuthais - a fine, pathless Corbett with a stunning Torridon panorama from its twin-topped summit. Twice before I'd climbed the mountain path to find the Corbett clagged-in. So it was fingers crossed for third time lucky as I drove out of murky Inverness towards the promise of a sunlit west. Dropping down from Achnasheen to Kinlochewe my spirits lifted when I saw the Torridon peaks piercing the cloud in a temperature inversion.
