The heatwave in The Highlands just keeps going on and on! I decided to head up to the best mountain area in the world-Torridon. Unaware that over the weekend the western end of Liathach had been ablaze with a heather fire due to the very dry and hot weather we've been experiencing the last 3-4 weeks. I headed up onto Beinn Eighes' ridge early afternoon so not a soul out along the ridge. Beautiful clarity of light in the SE airflow. Very warm and only a light breeze.
