I returned recently a little worse for wear after a 4 day hiking/camping trip to the Great Wilderness in Scotland.
This is the view from Beinn Airigh Charr, the first summit of our Great Wilderness trek across one of the most remote areas of the British Isles in the Scottish Hightlands. Part of the Fisherfields Forest in Wester Ross is a good 12 hour drive from my home in Exeter and as soon as we arrived it was then a race against the light to get to our camp on the summit some 7 miles and 790m climb from the car park in Poolewe. Amazingly we managed to reach the summit in 3 1/2 hours giving us time to set up the tents before heading out with our cameras. The view from the summit is incredible and after our failed trip in April because of poor conditions it made it all the more sweeter. (I must admit I did show my appreciation on reaching the summit with a few selected words…)
The view includes all of our locations we where to visit over the following 4 days which where to be blessed with some of the best weather conditions we could have wished for. Unfortunately this did result in a severe lack of sleep as at this time of year it never gets dark!Location
