November 2009 - Schiehallion, Southern Highlands, Perthshire, Scotland.

Schiehallion, another one of Scotland's iconic mountains and one on which early scientific experiments took place to determine the mass of the earth, dominates the eastern edge of the vast waste of Rannoch Moor and its deceptively pointed peak is clearly visible from as far away as Glencoe.
In reality, the mountain is a large whaleback with a mile or so long ridge running east to west and, despite the horrific boulder field that marks the bulk of this ridge and the summit cone, is easily climbed from its eastern end.
This view, taken from just below the summit cone on an icy morning, looks out over Dunalasdair Water, Loch Rannoch and Rannoch Moor to the distant mountains of Glencoe.
