Beinn Eighe

Up Beinn Eighe, this corrie tarn is about half way up in elevation. It was a really warm day for early April and the snow was melting like crazy. The ascent got a bit more challenging after the tarn. A couple of days before we would have needed snow shoes, axes, crampons and ropes to get up to here, and on. Beinn Eighe is an awesome monroe, from the top you can just make out the east coast, while the west coast and lochs are in plain view. Looking at the west side of the Atlantic over the saddle we ascended.The way down was a bit tricky too with drifts of half melted snow to cross, beautiful day!
