Internationally famous for its amazing landscape, its natural and cultural heritage; the scenery of Glencoe has been fashioned by millions of years of geological and geomorphologic processes is now regarded as some of the finest ‘wild’ landscape in Scotland.
What better place to go and take in some of the finest scenery in Scotland as a treat for my far better half on her birthday? My being a keen hillwalker and crap photographer when I get the chance had nothing to do with the choice of location either…
The end result was not only a head full of fond memories, but included one or two visits to places I had passed many times but hadn’t ventured out with a camera to.
We truly live in God’s country – Alba gu bràth.

At Glenfinnan, framed amid typically spectacular Highland scenery at the head of Loch Shiel with sweeping glens as a backdrop, stands this poignant monument to the final Jacobite Rising.
