After living for about two years in Scotland, it’s time to go back home. For this reason, I decided to go on a last epic Scottish trip through the Highlands and the Isle of Skye.
The map below shows all the locations I visited, simply click on the black markers to see which image was taken there. Hopefully it will help if you are planning a trip.
I spent most of day 1 on the road. The first stop was Glencoe, a top location for landscape photographers. The weather was horrible, when I got off the bus it was pouring down and I had to walk for about 15 minutes to reach the campsite. After pitching the tent (in the rain) and settling in I had to bring my shoes and clothes in the drying room as I was drenched to the skin!
Day 2 was sunshine and showers and this allowed me to explore the area a bit and go for a hike on Beinn a’Chrulaiste, a hill that overlooks Glencoe and offers spectacular views of the famous Buachaille Etive Mor. The ascent was quite difficult due to the bad quality of the terrain and the almost total absence of a path especially in the final part, which was very steep. However, the effort was rewarded by one of the most spectacular views in Scotland.
As you can see from the images above, the weather changed very quickly, which is why after taking some pictures I decided to start the descent towards the campsite.
Due to the incessant rain of the fourth day, I put off the departure for the Isle of Skye and I took the opportunity to relax in the cafe of the campsite.
