Hi guys. Just back from a fornight in Wester Ross and here's one of my attempts at a landscape. Taken looking to An Teallach, I loved the rust of the old roof with the mountains in the distance. It was one of our few sunny warm days!
For those interested here are a few facts:
An Teallach lies to the southwest of Dundonnell at 1062m (3484 feet), in an area often nicknamed the "great wilderness". An Teallach translated from Gaelic is The Forge.
The mountain is mostly made of Torridonian sandstone. Like the peaks around Torridon (for which the rock is named), An Teallach has terraced sides with steep gullies and a sharp rocky summit crest. The most impressive section, known as Corrag Bhuide, rises above Loch Toll an Lochain. Corrag Bhuide's most spectacular feature is an overhanging pinnacle known as Lord Berkley's Seat.
An Teallach is a complex mountain massif, with ten distinct summits over 3,000 feet (914.4 metres). From 1891 to 1981, only the highest of these, Bidean a' Ghlas Thuill, had the status of a Munro – a separate mountain over 3,000 feet. In 1981 the Scottish Mountaineering Club granted Munro status to Sgurr Fiona, in recognition of its considerable topographic prominence (150m) and distinct nature.
Thanks for looking.
