Seems like months since I’ve been out with the camera. So this is one I took earlier, and since the summer seems to be over and snow might make a comeback this weekend (on the summits!), here’s some of the white stuff from winter.
Jagged peaks of the Black Cuillin mountain range. The highest point of the Cuillin (and of the Isle of Skye) is Sgùrr Alasdair at 992 m (3,255 ft), the 5th highest peak in the British Isles.
I'm so glad spring is here! 🍃
Going to be away for my work for a few days again. But I'll post more pictures!
And I will keep my promise. ☺ x
Eilean Donan is a small tidal island where three sea lochs meet, Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the western Highlands of Scotland. A picturesque castle that frequently appears in photographs, film and television dominates the island 🏴
Back on the west coast and a welcome sunset tonight at Connel Bridge, it’s been a while

Inside the Barrisdale Bothy, we spent 3 nights in here at the w/end, electricity, running tap water, sink, flushing toilet, and single bed mattress, for £3 a night, and we never knew, as we carried all of our camping gear in, result @allanjdonald @michellehaining1 #knoydart #knoydartpeninsula #knoydartferry #barrisdale #barrisdalebay #barrisdalebothy #remote #remoteplaces #bothy #bothylife #bothyculture #bothycoffee #scotland #mytiso #tisoonline #scottishhighlands #getout #visitscotland #unlimitedscotland #keepitwild #ordancesurvey #discoverscotland #ukpotd #bbcscotlandpics #ig_photooftheday #icu_scotland #scotspirit #getout #getoutdoors x

Familiarity breeds neglect, and even though the city is in a dynamic state of flux - new buildings, businesses and street art everywhere you look - I still struggle to see beyond my feet at times. It’s been 10 and 1/2 years since I first set foot in Aberdeen, and I can still remember wandering with wide eyed wonder, gawking at the mix of architecture, pondering the history, and trying to understand THE DORIC. My ears are certainly more tuned to the local dialect these days, but the wide eyed wonder has mostly faded. Time is short though, and no place is ever the same from moment to moment, so I’ll try and keep the demotivation to a minimum and continue looking, wondering, exploring, and making images. 😎

Scottish Road Trip Day 2//Waking up at this spot in Glen Etive feeling completely dwarfed by the massive landscape surrounding us. There’s something about spots like this that make you feel so insignificant.
I really tried to restrain myself from drowning you in information when it came to the Highlands, and just let you get a feel from the photos. I think, however, that with posting this one, there are some details which need to be mentioned.
Bidean nam Bian, lying to the south of Glen Coe, is the highest point in the former county of Argyll. It is a complex mountain, with many ridges and subsidiary peaks.
The most noticeable features of Bidean nam Bian are the famous Three Sisters of Glen Coe (two of them visible on the photo). What they are is three steeply-sided ridges which extend north into the Glen, named Gearr Aonach (Short Ridge), Aonach Dubh (Black Ridge) and Beinn Fhada (Long Hill).

Glencoe was the scene of one of the most infamous massacres in Scottish history.
On 13 February 1692, the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were slaughtered while they slept by Captain Robert Campbell and his men. The day is imprinted in Scottish history, not only because of the number of people who lost their lives, but because the men had enjoyed their victims hospitality in the days leading up to the massacre.
Glencoe had been home to the MacDonald clan (or MacIains as they were more specifically known) since the early 14th century when they had supported King Robert the Bruce.
Experts in the field believe the events can be understood only within a knowledge of the Highlander’s resistance to an alien southern government.
