Ben Roshven from Roshven Farm Taken in the early 1980s. I'm estimating 1983. My father took this photo when I was a wee boy. I'm the little guy with the black top and red wellies.

Small Isles. The west ridge of Rois-bheinn is famed for the views given during its gentle descent.  Looking down the grassy ridge to Eigg, mountainous Rum, and a hint of Canna beyond. Even further out, the three big hills of South Uist can be seen <a href="https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/15943">NF7933 : Beinn Mhor.</a>.

Summit of Rois-bheinn The cairn in the photo marks the highest point of the Corbett of Rois-bheinn. There was once a trig point at this spot - no longer - there are however fragments of rough concrete within the cairn which if not part of the pillar itself are likely to be remnants of the 'skirting' of its base. The mountain top distant is the lower W. top of Rois-bheinn.

Upper West Ridge of Rois-bheinn The low grass with stoniness of the upper W. ridge of Rois-bheinn leads to the (lower) W. top of the mountain. Below in the photograph is the Roshven area of Moidart with Loch Ailort and The Sound of Arisaig.

Vertical rock strata I believe the rock here is very old and of volcanic origin. This shows some which has a resemblance to the form of sedentary rock strata.

High level lake Tucked away in a pleasant green valley is a beautiful clear water lake. The valley was probably shaped by ice long ago.

Frog in a high place Do frogs survive the winter on mountains? It seems possible that this one did or it took a long walk like I did!

Remains of old fence This old fence would not have stopped sheep or deer so was it put here just to define a boundary?

Seaward view from a mountainside It's useful to have GPS location if you wander about on this mountainside. Doing it the old way with an OS map needs good skills. Now in 2016 we can check locations on the internet with Ordnance Survey maps as well as aerial photography. This wasn't possible in the early years of Geograph.
