First Days of Winter

Glencoe Village and Loch Leven

Glencoe Village and Loch Leven

    Back in 2010. It was a cold and sunny day. My hiking mate was leaving Scotland, so we decided to do a last trip to Glencoe, probably the most beautiful valley of the UK. The route was amazing. From Glencoe Village, we crossed a lovely forest, and then, cut straight to the top  of the Pap of Glencoe, a mountain famous for its steep and cone-shaped summit.

  2. Wow, simply amazing photos and scenery. My favourite one is Loch Tulla – love the sunset on the hills, it looks like burning embers.
