Goats on An Teallach

A goat on Sgorr Fiona.

Just back from a superb trip to An Teallach with clear weather and an inversion - the first time I've been on the mountain and seen anything. I'll post a trip report in the next few days - there were two good wild camps as well - but in the meantime here's some pictures of goats. Apart from three people in the distance I saw nobody all day but I did see goats, lots of goats, maybe forty in total.

Most of the goats were wandering across the slopes browsing occasionally and noting my passing without any sign of alarm. Some appeared to be enjoying the sunshine, lying on exposed rocks and standing on summits. I didn't know An Teallach had so many goats. They look very at home, moving easily over steep terrain I wouldn't venture onto.
