Photographer's Note

View looking north from Sgurr Eilde Mor (1008 metres), The Mamores, Scottish Highlands. On day one of this travelogue we trekked in the Mamores in perfect late autumn sunshine, a cold windless day (3C). There was a temperature inversion allowing us to get above the cloudbase - the early morning sunlight and mist greatly enhanced the lighting. The middle distance mountain is Binnein Beag, which we ascended later in the day and the distant righthand mountain is Ben Nevis, the highest point in the UK.
ADDITIONAL NOTE:
Piles of stones (cairns) are navigational aids and can be found all over the UK.
Their presence has been subject to much debate - in some areas they have become intrusive and detract from the 'remote experience'. In fact there is a general move to remove many unneccesary cairns. They typically mark the route of tracks (footpaths), but with good map reading skills and/or modern technology (GPS) they are not really necessary. Some cairns have grown to gigantic proportions, especially those on popular mountain tops.

This particular (small) cairn marks the summit of the mountain.
