On the Isle of Skye, in the Hebrides
You will find a different rhythm
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth;
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here,
My heart's in the Highlands, a-chasing the deer;
Chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,
My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go. - Robbie Burns
Went fly fishing there today for pike and got a 4lb!!Glad I took the camera along!!

I Managed to get a few shots after a week of overcast skies .. I used a ND graduated and ND to try and balance this capture
Oh, ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.
Holly tree in my garden in front of the Milky Way
Cille Choirill is a 15th-century Roman Catholic church situated in Glean Spean in Lochaber, Scotland. Dedicated to St Kerrill, (also called "Cyril"), it was possibly built by Cameron of Lochiel.
After lying roofless for some time, it was repaired in 1932/33 with financial support from Nova Scotian descendants of Lochaber emigrants.
Situated in the Roman Catholic parish of St Margaret's, and the former civil parish of Kilmonivaig, it is used for mass once per month during the summer months.
The Gaelic poets Iain Lom and Dòmhnall Mac Fhionnlaigh nan Dàn are buried in the churchyard.
The estate was formerly known as Mount Alexander. An earlier house was illustrated in Neale's Seats, but only the foundations of this remain at a different site. Heiton was the second of a dynasty of 3 generations: after training with his father, he spent time in the office of Burn and Bryce between 1842 and 1848, from whence he evidently acquired experience with Baronial design, leaving to provide a host of fine, imaginative compositions which stand up well in comparison with those of David Bryce. He is known for such masterpieces as Atholl Palace Hotel and Vogrie House, Midlothian.
The house was vacated in 1952, after having housed a school for Polish refugees.
Patience was needed for this shot, waiting for the light on the island paid off.
The A82 and its wonderful scenery. No heavy adjustments or "artistic" post processing. Just as it was and how I think it is meant to be.
The A82 is a road in Scotland that runs from Glasgow to Inverness by way of Fort William. The majority of the route is a trunk road and hence managed by Transport Scotland, who view the road as a vitally important link through the Scottish Highlands and beyond.
The road passes close to some of the most notable landmarks in the Highlands, including Loch Lomond, Rannoch Moor, Glen Coe, Ben Nevis, the Commando Memorial, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Several travel guides have praised individual parts of the road, such as the section from Tyndrum to Glencoe across Rannoch Moor, as providing memorable driving experiences. At 167 miles (269 km), the road is the second longest A-road in Scotland, after the A9, and has been described as the "slower but more scenic route" of the two.
The A82 has an extensive history. It is derived in several places from the military roads constructed through the Highlands by General Wade and Major Caulfeild during the early to mid 18th century, along with later roads constructed by Thomas Telford in the early 19th. The modern route is based on that designed by Telford, but with a number of improvements primarily dating from the 1920s and '30s. These include a diversion across Rannoch Moor and another around Loch Leven, which was subsequently replaced by the Ballachulish Bridge.
Glen Etive (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Èite) is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. The River Etive (Scottish Gaelic: Abhainn Èite) rises on the peaks surrounding Rannoch Moor, with several tributary streams coming together at the Kings House Hotel, at the head of Glen Coe. From the Kings House, the Etive flows for about 18 km, reaching the sea loch, Loch Etive. The river and its tributaries are popular with whitewater kayakers and at high water levels it is a test piece of the area and a classic run.
At the north end of Glen Etive lie the two mountains known as the "Herdsmen of Etive": Buachaille Etive Mòr and Buachaille Etive Beag. Other peaks accessible from the Glen include Ben Starav, located near the head of Loch Etive, and Beinn Fhionnlaidh on the northern side of the glen.
A narrow road from the Kings House Hotel runs down the glen, serving several houses and farms. This road ends at the head of the loch, though rough tracks continue along both shores.
The River Etive is one of Scotland's most popular and challenging white water kayaking runs. It provides a multitude of solid Grade 4(5) rapids with a variety of falls and pool drops.
Buachaille Etive Mor sits at the entrance to Glen Etive.
its the classic mountain and commands views from across Glencoe.

...another fantastic place...around was all freezy! Look that white spot on the right part of the lake...it's ice! I love that white and ochre contrast...it's wild and warm at the same time....
On the West side of Trotternish at Balnacnoc (which means - the village or township in the hills) above Uig, is the Fairy Glen – a Quirang-like landslip in miniature.
The road winds around small round-topped grassy hills with lochans (ponds) in between which gives the glen an otherworldly feel.
