I did this painting after a fantastic day walking this time last year.  A friend and I went up to Bridge of Orchy to climb Beinn Dorain – and caught ourselves a wonderful few hours of weather.  It was freezing hard all the way up from the road, but there really wasn’t much snow except on the steep north facing slope not far below the cairns.  As we climbed the clouds broke and although clear around us, the hills of Crianlarich and Glen Falloch were all sticking there heads out of the mist.  Being mid week we only saw a couple of other walkers and when we reached the main summit we had the place to ourselves.  We just sat and took in the incredible views and complete silence.
