Scotland 1997 + 1999


My dad is a seasoned visitor to Scotland but I've only recently have been going with him.

1999 was a particularly memorable holiday spent in Roy Bridge near Fort William.

Schiehallion - 12 October 1997


Cheese and jam sandwiches and a nice cup of tea makes a perfect lunch break. A passing walker obliges us with a picture as we shelter from a cold wind.

Schiehallion is a popular and accessible mountain so we made an early start that day to miss the poorly equipped groups walking up in the afternoon.


Glen Dessary, head of Loch Arkaig - October 1999

After becoming very foot sore from day 1, poorer weather also favoured lower walks such as this one up Glen Dessary


Loch Arkaig - October 1999


Sandwiches and tea along side the Loch. A bright and cool day.
