Add your photos - anything from holiday locations and buildings and gardens you've visited, to local scenery and beyond - and anything else which doesn't fit into most of the other photo threads  :)

    To start off this year's thread here is a cloud inversion on the way up to Snowdon via the Rhydd Ddu path.
    Glad to see you're back out on the hills @Fairygirl 😊

    A view of Snowdon from the opposite side of the valley on our way up to the Nantile Ridge. 
    Great pictures @Fairygirl, we did the ' wee Bookil' a few years ago but the weather wasn't as kind as your visit, still fantastic though.

    Lovely view @scroggin :)
    I remember you posting some pix of the wee bookil, and it's actually what made me think of returning to it. I realised it was about 12 years since I was there  :)

    Gorgeous photos, @scroggin and @Fairygirl - thank you!   :)

    We're planning a trip to the hilly bit of Co.Kerry before too long... we fancy a look at Macgillycuddy's Reeks, for its name if for no other reason...   :D  ...will try to take some photos.

    I seem to remember we had a conversation before about MacGillycuddy's Reeks @Liriodendron. I may have to return to Clachertyfarlie Knowes too - just for the name! :D

    It looks like a cracking walk though. A really nice traverse with some good summits.  I'll look forward to the pix.

    Since it's chucking it down just now, and I'm having to, literally, watch paint dry instead, here's a few pix for @Woodgreen - Beinn Bhuide in Glen Fyne

    Just at the point where you leave the track [at the old cottage - handy for a bike  ;) ] you get the view along to the Tyndrum hills


    The route up to the open, boggy section is always lovely. There's a few wee dodgy sections round some rocky outcrops, but it's mostly very straighforward


    The orchids on the open stretch

    Up through the cleft to the ridge


    Take the left path up to the summit [there's a large cairn]



    Summit views - across to the Crianlarich hills etc


    and to the Arrochar hills



     The locals are mostly very friendly  ;) 






    I can't quite believe that was over 6 years ago.   :o

    Thank you @Fairygirl. What a good day you had, it's always better when the views are there, that's why I was hoping for a good day when I made my plans. Inevitably we had poor days on some Munro's but we never set off if we knew that the weather would mean it was a day for inspecting the path only!
    Lovely photos.
    I'll get there one day.

    It was murky with cloud/rain now and again, but the bulk of it was good. Especially for July!
    It's a long walk to get to that cottage [around 1.5 hours maybe?]  which is why so many folk use a bike. I only have my two legs  ;)
    It can be busy because of the distillery there, but it's a really good walk. Hope you get up at some point to do it.  :)

    The monthly walkhighlands newsletter arrived yesterday @Woodgreen, and I wondered if this new book in one of the links  would be of any interest to you  :)
    https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/news/the-munros-a-history/

    I don't know if you ever use the site, but it might be useful for you [as well as subscribing to the newsletter] if you don't already use it. Apologies if I'm preaching to the converted  ;)
