(I HATE being force-fed music on websites, so if you want some entertainment whilst you read, try Solus na Madainn by Runrig )
Ben Wyvis - about to be climbed. Winter, mid 80s. (Year not temperature!)
My home. Cromarty Firth from above Nigg. I worked for a year at the Highlands Fabricators oil platform construction yard in the middle distance. Dingwall is hidden in the background, behind the shafts of light.
It's an odd picture, but I've always found this piece of road in Strathfarrar, just before you reach Monar dam, has a very... wierd atmosphere. It's most odd. Feels like something out of 'Lord of the Rings'.
Also in Strathfarrar, looking across Loch Beanachrann towards Sgurr na Lapaich.
Another nice view of Strathfarrar, in winter. Not noted for its heavy traffic.
Yours truly outside Deanie power station in his infamous truly Bad jacket. Yep, Strathfarrar again.
Another one of my favourite place, again with a very strong and wierd atmosphere... the Allt nan Uamh, in Assynt. Perhaps the atmosphere is affected by the knowledge that the caves in the rocky cliffs on the right of the path were inhabited by our distant ancestors, just after the last ice age 10,000 years ago...
Close by, in Coigach, the shapely mountain of Suilven, seen from Elphin.
A little further south, Stac Pollaidh.
Saving the best for last... my favourite mountain of all, Liathach, in Glen Torridon - from the East...
...and from the West.
