After a pint at Sligachan Hotel, in 1966 I and two friends climbed Sgurr Nan Gillean and slept on the summit before an early start at 04,00 and headed off along the ridge,
Its the hardest ridge in UK and is no place for the average hillwalker.
Photo taken from beside the Sligachan bridge.
Sgurr na Gillean translates as "Hill of the young Men" and Am Basteir as "The Executioner"
