Bare Mountain

161020-sketchbook-hba5-02

Last October this small mountain sported a full covering of deep dark forest but this year it has been stripped bare. At 224 metres Leac Gharbh is but a hillock and could easily be climbed if one was of the notion. But  having just come down from Am Binnein I would rather sit here on my little canvas travelling seat and sketch.

If I had made the effort I would likely have found a flat stone at the apex for that is what Leac Gharbh, translated from the Gaelic, means.

One thing is certain: it is not a place to be caught out on after nightfall especially around Halloween!
