Here Robin Wallace and friend enjoy a spectacular summit sunset camp on the mighty Beinn Dearg, a neglected Torridon gem that hides behind the more celebrated 3000-ers. Though it just fails to make Munro status, something we can thank for its comparative neglect, it yields nothing in impact. And the view's not too shabby either.

Looks like a couple of days well spent:
