Beinn Eighe Mountain in Mist

Beinn Eighe

Beinn Eighe, pronounced Ben Ay, is more of a range of mountains than a single mountain.  Its main peak is 1010m.

This mountain is unique in Torridon in having a peak of Quartzite rather than Torridian Sandstone, hence the white colouring – it’s not snow capped.  People often think this mountain has snow on it when in fact it’s just the sun reflecting off the quartzite.

  1. I like the depth and gradations in shade here. (Had to look up where Beinn Eighe is but now I know. I’ve heard wonderful things about the Highlands in Scotland, and will have to make it there one of these days).

Let me know what you're thinking.........
