Caithness Hills

On Monday we drove north to climb Morven. Left the car in glorious sunny weather at 11.00am. by the time we were nearing the summit the mist was in and we could only imagine the views. Carried on over the fantastic conglomerate tors of Smean to a col below Scaraben where we camped. Drizzly and misty.
Tuesday started misty as we set off over the first top of Scaraben but cleared for the main summit. Over another top and down to the car for lunch.
Went to have a look at the climbing at Latheronwheel in the afternoon. Very picturesque, just too cold to do anything!
On the way home we drove along Glen Loth to do another quick Graham. Interesting glen with lots of remains of Brochs etc.
