Hidden Valley Glencoe

The Hidden Valley Glencoe is a fantastic days walk. Whenever I visit Glencoe just driving towards Stob Dearg (the Red Mountain) shrinks me into Antman. You normalise in the face of such grand mountains as do your worries and achievements. We are all very small creatures measured against mother nature. Also known as The Lost Valley and this selection is from November 2005.

Leaving Harris and Lewis

Final frames from my first visit to Harris and Lewis in November 2016. There are lots of pre-trip processes I do mainly around maps which I love. Ordinance Survey Explorer paper maps kickstarted my love of the outdoors. In Cubs I learned map reading. In Geography I learned mapping countours and detail. Aged 15 I learned route planning as my friends and I and cycled Scotland’s Youth Hostels. So now I start with a map and write notes on it before I go and update with what I found. “Great rock formations”, “Sea stacks”, “Great hot chocolate” all make for useful information. And i will return to these islands.
