classic pictures of Torridon show awesome rugged hills that
look as if they've stepped right out of the Pyrenees. Every
thing is massive and rocky. It's therefore incredible, how the
weather can put a different slant on things. As, given the perfect

this nowhere was definitely better than the somewhere
that could have been John Lewis, Homebase or any other highstreet
retailer... and later in the pub it was strange how quickly memories
change. All too quickly, the wind and rain seemed to have had
a more refreshing edge rather than being simply wet and cold.
In fact our memories were so short that the next day we enjoyed
the same conditions in Drumochter, although in the same spirit
it could well have been Torridon.
