In Search of the Snow-Capped Mountains

The weather recently has been cool but sunny and I've noticed that the mountains to the north of Glasgow are beautifully snow-capped against the blue sky. So on Monday I went in search of these mountains and got as far as Glencoe.

North of Tyndrum there are three mountains that I've photographed many times over the years.     

Beinn Dorian
Beinn a Chaisteil
Beinn Odhar

From the viewpoint you can see Beinn Achaladair, Beinn an Dothaidh  and Loch Tulla

A favourite view of mine and particularly good at this time of year - Lochan na h-Achlaise and the Black Mount (white today) in Rannoch Moor

It was a nice day but it was cool - there was still a dusting of snow in the shade.


  1. Wow, stunning views, rugged scenery. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. So very pretty. Are you sure you don't want to start charging money to Travel Scotland to use your photos? They make everyone want to ride there.

  3. I'm glad you all liked the photos - I knew you would!

    It is an epic landscape and in this great weather, you couldn't take a bad photo if you tried. Accessible as well - only two hours from home and quiet roads at this time of year. BUT…it isn't always like this. You need to keep an eye on the weather forecast and have patience.
