Scotland picture Photographs from Kinlochleven, Scotland, November 2007

Here are a few photos I took while hiking in a very damp Scottish Highlands in late October / early November 2007. The weather - raining more often than not - didn't allow for as much hill walking and camping as I would have liked. At least I got ample opportunity to test out my new waterproof jacket...

The trip lasted 5 days and was based from Kinlocheven, at the foot of The Mamores. The highlight was my first traverse of the Aonach Eagach ("Notched Ridge"), one of Scotland's best known and most popular scramble routes. The rocks were wet but not too slippery but unfortunately the cloud was low and so visibility was limited to around 200m for most of the time. I'd love to get back there on a clear, sunny day - the views must be spectacular.
