Lunch On Top of the World

Lunch On Top of the World
One of the best things about British mountains is that in general you can get to the top of them - although Liathach presents more of a challenge than some. We spent a very pleasant lunch break here at Spidean a Coire Leith (1055m) admiring this view of the Beinn Eighe mountain chain and the lower slopes of Liathach.

During the whole day in these fabulous conditions we encountered just one group of four other people. However our lunch break was spectacularly interrupted by a fast jet, flying from behind where we sitting, just 40m away from us below and to our left. The pilot proceeded to skim the top of Beinn Eighe before climbing for a huge loop. I think he was enjoying the mountains just as much as we were!
