Despite their modest height, walking and climbing in the Scottish hills may be made treacherous by their latitude and exposure to Atlantic weather . Even in summer, conditions can be atrocious; thick fog, strong winds, driving rain and freezing summit temperatures are not unusual....Please enjoy from the comfort of your home.

You've taken my eyes to the heights of pleasure here Mick ... while making me reach for an afghan to cover my shivering limbs. Appreciate the beautiful image ... the " chilblains" I can do without. :o)

Very very new to this, and only have a bog standard fuji 2mb digi camera.
12/11/06 2:02 AM GMT this an anti tourist shot and description? This way you keep the outsiders out of your country and still get to share the beauty of it through the lens of your camera...I hate to accuse you of just may be a scenery snatcher......yes, the truth comes j/k...This is nothing short of breathtaking..wonderful work :)PJ

Ahh, the master of light striks again! This is gorgeous. That sky is awesome. The hills are smooth and invite hiking. Your commentary is awesome as well. I will take your advice and enjoy this from the comfort of my home. Great post.

The sky is alright, but the hills and everything on them make the picture

I'm 17 and don't travel much. But I tend to bring my camera around just to catch what sticks out from my everyday goings. (pardon me if I speak my mind) *~* Gallery *~*

The colors in the sky are phenominal!! the way the hills just seem to roll on forever is breathtaking! Up close the grass looks very rugged, but from a distance it looks like a soft green carpet. This is amazing and going right into my favorites!

Hey Mick, i have been to the Cairnegorms but i dont remember them looking like this. This is a beautiful shot. However, i dont rememeber their height being very modest. I went there on a Geography field trip and never made it to the top of Cairngorm. It was April and pooring with rain and freezing cold and i was ill :( Not that there would have been much of a view on a day like that. But despite that i truely believe it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I went to Canada, Spain, Finalnd and Scotland that year all with my University but Scotland was by far the most breathtaking. Thankyou of reminding me of the beauty of it. Its in my favs forever!
