...another of this huge lump of rock chiseled out by a glacier many millions of years ago, this sits just behind Quinag another fine mountain ridge in Assynt.
Kin and I are nearing the end of our journey, you have all been very kind with your comments and support as we traveled around the West of Scotland, many thanks to you all.

Looks like some decent light to give it a bit of modeling.

Soulmates? I thought, "what a huge lump of a mountain" - then I read what you wrote - exactly the same words!
I was trying to make out, if I would like to climb it...I'm not really sure!
Beautiful, clear image once again, you have been very lucky with the weather my friend.
Take care,
All the very best,
Jo Grin

This should look cold and bleak but the light seems to give it an overall warm feeling Dougie.

Good shot of this Lump of rock, think I prefer this to the pano you had of the same area. An interesting mountain which dominates the landscape and you've done a good job of showing that.

It was so nice to see the pictures you had of Lewis as not many people get that far.

thought it was Ingleborough or Pen-y-gent at first!

Probably 1000 feet taller than either of those! We don't do Munroes down here after all... well we've got 3!

It means Heel rough, or better Rough Heel, why I don't know other than at some angles it looks like a heel.

The angle of light saved the day! And the last glaciers were not that long ago, just tens of thousands with 12,000 years ago being the last of it. But yes, millions of years of it carved this amazing place

These mountains and the rock along the Glen here is some of the oldest in the world. There's a huge fault line just around the corner which geoligists visit from around the globe.

This is a beauty Dougie the top covered in a blast of frost caught well here. Its deceiving the size of the mountain as there's nothing to scale it too, but I can guarantee it myself that it is massif Smile

Know this spot very well.

Have eaten packed lunches on top of this mountain on more than one occasion. In fact, we went up this one on two consecutive days because the light wasn't right the first day.

Hope we manage to find time to get up there again soon as there's a great view when the weather is right.

All the best

Sue

I'd love to be able to join you up there Sue, I can imagine how wonderful the view is, sadly my legs would complain at the hike.

Looks like this could be our Ayres Rock if the setting sun did a red number on it!!! Anyway, it's quite a magnificent scottish rock beautifully photographed and shared out to all of us who admire such wonderful things.
