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!

simply astounding. How long did it take to hike up there and set up everything?
