Autumn Runs

Autumn, a favourite season of mine. Two weekends with great weather: cold, crisp starts with blue clear skies; gorgeous colours; the sound of the deer rutting; and seasonal smells too – all made it worth the effort of getting up early for a couple of runs in the hills.

First, a rounding of Beinn an t-Sithein by Strathyre, through mist at first, though that was soon left behind as I gained height and got to enjoy stunning inversion conditions over Loch Lubnaig and Strathyre.

A couple of weeks later, a cold start but crimson dawn colours on the tops of Torridon’s peaks suggested warmth to come whilst unseen rutting deer echoed off of the cliffs as I made my way round Liathach – a stunning place to spend any time and what a way to start a day.
