  1. Amazingly those mountainous shots, especially Coire Sgriodain, look very like the countryside on the borders of this National Park we are visiting (clouds and all). Here there is also farmed land in the valley bottoms. xxx Mr T

  2. Ben Macdui had a covering of snow when Bertie and I arrived in Aviemore on Thursday. All gone by thectime we left yesterday morning.

  3. beautiful! we love the dam... it has something from roman esign, but it's modern from the 40s?

      Very close - 1934 it was opened! The dam was built specifically to provide water for the aluminium smelter at Fort William (which is still there, thanks to Indian investment...) Yxx
