First hillwalking in Scotland starts nice and easy with some appealing hills, Stac Pollaidh being the first. But what a beauty it is. Of course the weather and warm May sun were helping. I won't write a lot, since English is not my native language, and unreadable mistakes may be annoying to some, and I won't post a lot of photo's, but still I would like to share some of what I've seen on this and other hills with you.
