Well, here goes

Hi everyone… you get to a point where you need to post.

In 2010, I travelled to Glasgow to visit some close friends.The plan was to get out and “bag a munro”, or even better, a shitload of them. A munro of course being a Scottish mountain cracking the 3,000 foot barrier.

If time permits, I’ll post on some of those beautiful hikes that we managed to do, the highlight being a quick jaunt up Goat Fell, the highest point on the Isle of Arran (I’ve got to admit it’s only a Corbett, measuring in at 2,866 ft). It’s hard to beat a good walk, amazing scenery and best of all once you get back down, a brewery.

This post though, showcases two photos from the ferry trip from Uig on Skye to Lochmaddy on North Uist. There wasn’t a breath of wind on the 3 hour trip over, which made for a bit of an eerie and beautiful ride. It was the perfect reward for all the driving my friend did getting us to Uig, which is not a quick trip.

Seven years ago, things were pretty quiet on the Outer Hebrides, which suited the scenery perfectly and the sense of calm these photo’s give matched the feeling on the islands.

Whether things have changed now I don’t know. Hopefully one day, I’ll get to find out.
