Photo Spot Details

On the right day, the sunrise strikes the slanted bowl that is the peak of Beinn Alligin. The first sunlight of the day makes the slopes burn a reddish/pinkish hue. The photograph was taken in an unnaturally mild February; usually at that time of year there would be a dusting of snow and the effect would be quite different. The area is immensely rich in other photographic possibilities (Loch Clair and Loch Maree, for instance).
