Beinn Alligin from Baosbheinn
Torridon, NW Highlands, Scotland
Possibly the most exceptional light display I have experienced in Scotland came right at the end of a week of hoplessly bad weather. For days we struggled with low cloud, rain and an almost complete lack of good light. But we clung to the hope throughout that this final evening would come good. We climbed Boasbheinn in the cloud and set our tents up on the summit with little hope that we would see anything. But as sunset approached the cloud lifted and right on the horizon we could see the most perfect clear blue gap. Then it was just a waiting game until the inevitable light came. What a show!
