... scenery, and it fair takes yer breath away. Take a look at these...quite a few Munros up here (mountains over 3,000 feet high... of which there are 282 throughout Scotland where bagging (climbing) them is a national pastime).

The place names in this remote region are wonderful......get yer tongue around Achiltibuie, ...

... until we had to cross over into Glen Dochary. This entailed dropping down into a gorge and scrambling up the other side. (all on the way to Lands End.... I'd normally think twice about such a route on a Sunday walk! Bloody madness) The Glen was beautiful though even in what was now awful weather.

So much for predictions of a short day! 18 miles as good as dammit. Awoke to typical mizzling day, the wind blowing hard enough to ensure we were quickly damp and needing all our waterproofs on. First half of the day was then a solid root march along the seemingly endless access track to Choire Lodge. Little to see apart from the occasional deer.
