We wanted to explore a new bit of Scotland for our fifth winter hiking trip. Skye is on our list, but also rather daunting. Instead we headed for Torridon - an altogether different landscape than our previous trips.
The winter season mostly collapsed the week before our arrival, so we were disappointed to find precious little snow on the mountains. With limited options we decided on Morrison’s Gully - with the thinking being this was the most likely place to find some snow.
Setting off before dawn, we had a long and beautiful approach around the back of Beinn Eighe.
The landscape behind Beinn Eighe was spectacular - I think we’d both like to come again in the summer and just camp around here and explore. For this day though, we needed to press on and up the gully.
