Okay, we’re up to the fifth last letter in the A to Z blogging challenge and I’ve totally gone with the easy option. There are not a lot of Scottish Highland related things starting with the letter V – my friends at work thought I should do Valhalla, the ultimate aim for vikings, as a lot of the highlands was settled by vikings, but instead I’m going with View.
As an Australian it is my responsibility to point out that the best views in the world are in Australia, but the Scottish Highlands run a close second. The one thing that I can’t take a photo of with my phone that is fabulous is the stars – in London, due to light pollution, it was sometimes easy to forget that there were stars in the sky, but here we can see them.
Here’s a selection of views that I think are beautiful.
Nairn beach on new years eve.
Cairngorm mountains taken from the train.
The ruins of Urquhart castle on the banks of Loch Ness.
Glen Coe (it’s just so stunning, that’s why there’s two pictures).
A loch on the way to Ullapool – so still, so perfect.
Sunset from Nairn beach.
