GlenFinnan - March 2008
A glorious winters day on the Glenfinnan Horseshoe.

 The Glenfinnan viaduct near the start of the walk  A glimpse of distant hills forming the hoseshoe  Sgurr nan Coireachan SE ridge in the centre. Connecting ridge to Sgurr Thuilm on the right  Difficult to get lost! This shows where to start the excellent stalkers track onto Sgurr nan Coireachan  Sgurr Thuilm from Sgurr nan Coireachan SE ridge  Approaching Sgurr nan Coireachan's south summit Sgurr a' Choire Riabhaich  Still plodding onto Sgurr a' Choire Riabhaich  Now on Sgurr a' Choire Riabhaich, real summit not visible yet.  Sgurr nan Coireachan nearly a km away!  Finally onto Sgurr nan Coireachan and the sun comes out. Distant view to Rhum.  Summit panorama of Sgurr nan Coireachan'  Mike on Sgurr nan Coireachan'  Wind whipping up some spindrift  Now following the fenceposts along the connection ridge. Sgurr Thuilm in the distance.  Looking back to Sgurr nan Coireachan. Note fence posts on edge of cliff!  Plodding along the very undulating ridge.  Looking back to Sgurr nan Coireachan.  More of Sgurr nan Coireachan  Fiona relaxing.  About halfway to Sgurr Thuilm, looking back along the ridge.  And looking towards Sgurr Thuilm.  Fiona.  Sgurr nan Coireachan  Glenfinnan  Sgurr Thuilm  South ridge of Sgurr Thuilm with Streap in the background  Sgurr Thuilm with some big snowdrifts in the foreground.  Summit view from Sgurr Thuilm. You can easily make out nevis in the distance but too many hills to name.  Sgurr nan Coireachan with Rhum in the background.  Close up of Nevis.  Summit panorama from Sgurr Thuilm. This is looking North towards Glen Dessarry.  Fiona on the descent from Sgurr Thuilm. Streap in the background.  Mike.  Streap.  This might be Gulvain.  Coire a Bheith, looks promising for some ski touring with a potential for summit run to just above that gorge in the forground.  Hmm, gorge looks skiable!
