An alluring view of a pointed breast and a thunderbolt!

After a brief stop at Rubh a Bhaid Beithe (point of the alluring beechwood), our course turned due east.

We now caught sight of Sgorr na Ciche ,the mountain which guards the west entrance of Glen Coe.

Sgorr na Ciche is Gaelic for "pointed peak of the breast". The Gaels are a poetic lot but they have a point.

To our south the ridges of Beinn a Bheithir (hill of the thunderbolt) rose into the clouds.
