Giant Tortoise   Loch Clair, Torridon, Scotland

This irresistible location at Loch Clair features the looming bulk of Liathach in the background and although I have seen it in many different guises and in all sorts of light this is the first time I recall it looking almost exactly like a giant tortoise.  The pattern of clouds printed across its shell certainly gives that impression and once seen it is difficult to view this mountain without a wry smile.
