Scrambling on An Teallach North West Scotland

Scrambling on An Teallach, North West Scotland.

Fantastic day enjoyed scrambling on the Torridonian sandstone pillars of An Teallach, North West Scotland in September 2009. Translated from Gaelic as the Anvil or Forge, it was certainly hot work!

We traversed the mountain from Corrie Hallie over Sail Liath to the Corrag Bhuidhe Buttresses pictured above. Moving on to the two munros of Sgurr Fiona and Bidein A' Ghlas Thuill gave us a memorable day on the mountain. An Teallach has to be one of the most beautiful mountains in Scotland and great fun to climb. On our last visit, lightning struck as we were on the summit of Bidein A' Ghlas Thuill giving us a hair raising descent in more ways than one!
