Hi Clan:  Phew! still a bit boat/car lagged but these are a few pics hot from my digital camera and I thought you might like to see them. They are shots of a recent trip to Knoydart in the NorthWest Highlands of Scotland. Overall the weather was fantastic and myself and my good friend Adrian had a great time wandering about on a five-day backpack around this remote mountain wilderness area. It is accessible only by boat from Mallaig or by a very long walk-in from Kinlochhourn (we're both pushing forty - so we got the boat!). The highest camp was at roughly 2500ft at the southerly end of the summit ridge of Ladhar Bheinn (3346ft).  From there we were fortunate enough to get both a clear view from the summit, as well as one of the most spectacular mountain sunsets I think I've ever seen. It made up for the five days of ever-more inedible dried food and those flesh-hungry midges... I hope you like the pics :-)
