The weather forecast looked pretty grim yesterday for most areas but I sensed things might improve the further I drove north. I was right. I ended up driving past Lairg and on passed the Crask Inn to park the car below Ben Klibreck. I love the wide open spaces of Sutherland and the views from Klibreck are superb - out along Loch Naver and Strath Naver, the site of so many dreadful clearances in the late nineteenth century, and across the moors to Scotland’s most northerly Munro - Ben Hope.
Fortunately, although the hill’s summit cone was covered in cloud all morning, it lifted sufficiently to get a few video shots of the surrounding area. Big problem with shooting video in the hills is the wind, and today was a nightmare with gale force winds on the summit. Very difficult to get any half decent audio under such circumstances. Anyway, I had a go, and you can see the results under Podcasts. Hope you enjoy it - it’s always fun putting these wee videos together.
