Loch Leven, Scotland

Taken from a popular midges' hangout in the Scottish Highlands just by Loch Leven.

 

We went through a lot of pain to reach this vantage point. We chose the mountain to climb based purely because "it looked nice." It turned out to be unfrequented by people and unmaintained, and consequently full of puddles and midges constantly attacking us. The elevation profile also shows a rapid ascent which had an affect on our backs, knees, muscles and spirits.

 

While the views were worth the effort, I would only recommend this to people I don't like.
