Fisherfield Vertigo by Alex37 Fisherfield Vertigo by Alex37
People with a fear of heights (Acrophobia apparently) should stay well away from the Letterewe Wilderness and particularly the view from Sgurr na Laocainn. The best viewpoint from the summit came with a spinning sense of vertigo. On a number of occasions I caught myself feeling dizzy and rapidly retreated from the edge. The views came with excitement, wonder and a healthy dose of caution, fortunately it wasn’t that windy!
The view down to Carnmore, a small house at the bottom of Carn Mor from Sgurr na Laocainn is essentially an aerial one. Watching the occasional person walk the path below gives a real sense of scale. From the viewpoint you have a panoramic view to A' Mhaighdean over Dubh Loch and Fionn Loch and out to see. The scene here is a 180 degree panorama! Around sunset the light escaped beneath the cloud to give a glancing red light to the landscape below. Dramatic rainclouds hung overhead and I sat there watching the showers pass, fortunately none hit me.

Thanks again. I suppose it depends on the situation but usually I feel a fantastic sense of excitement and enthusiasm. It makes me visibly happy. Sometimes though I have worked so hard to see a view and been unsuccessful a number of times due to bad weather, then when I do see the view I feel a sense of relief and satisfaction!

yeah it does seem pretty idillic, I would LOVE to live there. From what I understand it is more or less unused in winter. There is a small jetty and they use a boat to get provisions to the house, it would be impossible otherwise.

Wooow. Amazing light, colour scheme, positioning, epic camera, settings and not to mention the weather and landscape itself! Never wanted to be somewhere after seeing a photograph as much as now :)
