We spent a September weekend at Torridon Youth Hostel and climbed Liathach and Ben Alligin. This shot (just)shows my friend scrambling over the last pinnacle on the ridge. It was a beautiful day spoiled only by the fact that I left my car keys on the first peak and we had to reverse the whole walk to get them back!!

Distance covered: 8 miles
Height gained: 3800 feet
Time taken: 7 hours - because of the keys!

The Fasarinen Pinnacles form one of the classic mountain scrambles in Scotland. They are much shorter than either the Aonach Eagach or An Teallaich. The spectacular Torridonian scenery simply adds to their magic.
