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.

Eilean Glas Lighthouse on Scalpay

Eilean Glas Lighthouse on the island of Scalpay is a gem. Tower of red and white gloss painted brickwork surrounded by dishevelled outbuildings and a huge rusty fog horn. It lies north west of the northern most top of Skye protecting shipping from the turbulent Minch waters.

Harris Scotland

North Harris Scotland is another slice of nice. Rainbows, rain and sunshine bring out so much definition in landscape photography. A bridge in the east links to Scalpay, an island of around 300 people that includes the lighthouse at Eilan Glas. More photography of that soon.
