Autumn “Peaks” in the Highlands of Scotland

Last week we were fortunate to spend a few days in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

The end of October/beginning of November is the “height” of autumn here.

I am always amazed at the vivid colours, in the landscape, which is the result of high rainfall (often too much) and the excellent quality of light at this time of year. If you are lucky you may just get a “dusting” of snow on the moutains, which really is the “icing on the cake”

We spent 4 nights in the 2nd lodge, in the image, and travelled into Glencoe and the local countryside in search of beautiful scenery.

The mountain rising, just above the”scotch mist”, about a third in from the left in the image, is Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland (4,409 ft above sea level)

What an idyllic place ………………… I am now completely “chilled out”
