A few trip photos (1/2)

Back in Switzerland and the trip already seems well in the past after a first week at work. Here are a few photos, finally.

Starting on the West Coast of Scotland, in Poolewe.  In the first half an hour of walking had already sunshine and rain :-)

Typical West Coast forest - very wet with plenty of moss.

Walking along Loch Maree, behind the mountain range directly along the lake though. All heather, all wet.

Crossing a little saddle to get back to Loch Maree, and view to the NW.

In the Balnafoich Forest.

Along the River Findhorn. While it looks rather pleasant, that day it was very windy.  On the hills I had just crossed, the wind was reported to be 50 mph with gusts of up to 80mph.

In the forests to the East of Aviemore

Coffee break just short of Aviemore

Entering the Lairig Ghru from Aviemore through the Cairngorms to Braemar.
