Beinn Dorain

Scottish winter is like Janus, the two-faced Greek god: one face is the great Scottish adventure that is winter climbing and the other face the long nights in the grey - or silver if euphemized - city that is Aberdeen. In spring the adventures become smaller but colour appears. It is a time to hill walk and to get fit again for rock. In the east the gorse bushes start to bloom and the sun starts to rise earlier and earlier. The hills are like zebras with snow streaks on brown-green ground. So after a good winter season with few but memorable climbs it was time for a first hillwalk and Ana and I decided to walkup Beinn Dorain, a bridge of Orchy munro. Here is Ana during the ascent...

... and here some walkers higher up...

... and here is Ana approaching the summit.

Another beautiful day in the highlands. Lucky us.
