Re: Shattering the silence

Love this report, and there's so much movement in your photos. Somehow I couldn't hear your description of the jets over their deafening sound, and the roar was till ringing in my ears after they'd gone. HOWZAT for writing! :clap: :clap:

Re: Zen mountain hare

You're obviously very unscary, you two (well, yes, I think you're probably right, Charles). I think I've only experienced them being this zen on Hoy, where they run towards you!

Re: White tailed eagle on Geal-charn Mor (and hares)

They did thankfully, Mal, and so did the grouse! The eagle hung around above me for about 6 minutes - seemed more curious about this human than hungry. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49231940871_af35077522_h.jpg 030 Turning adjusted to see face by Emma Kendon , on Flickr https://live.staticflic...

Maol Chean-Dearg in high winds

For most of October I'd been under attack from shingles in my thigh, recovering just before this nip to the Highlands. It felt good to be out. In the end, I was knackered before I started, though, because the car broke down, about 50 miles into my journey, so I'd had to go back to the garage, hire a...

Re: Aran Ridge

I was 2/3 through reading this, and marvelling at the pics - especially the panos - when I suddenly realised I'd read it before, but (atypically!) not passed any comment (though I had marked it as a great report)! Know that feeling :lol: Thank you, glad it brought back good memories. I've got so ma...

Aran Ridge

A belated WH of the Aran Ridge in September. Apart from the Downs I hadn't got out on any hills since Iceland and work conspired against a Scotland trip, so south Snowdonia it was. The Arans had been on my radar a year or so ago, so I headed there. As ridges go, it's a stroll not an arête in any way...

Re: October light

Wonderful! I'm stuck at home in excruciating pain from shingles in my thigh, or at least I was until I went on this virtual wander. Thoroughly enjoyed Argyll and co in Autumn light through your lens, and glad you had such a cracking week. :clap:

Re: Iceland: Laugavegur Trail part 2 of 2

Iceland looks great - love to go there but doubt I ever will - too old. What is the gorge cut through? Volcanic tufa/ash? definitely not Mountain Avens - which has 8 petals (latin dryas octopetalis) looks like grass of Parnassus which you also find here, but I don't think the leaves are right - sax...
