Scottish Highlands Photo Essay
The Scottish highlands are a gigantic playground for any outdoor/ hiking enthusiast. Large areas, mostly untouched by human civilization. There are 283 “Monroes”, mountains named after the man that catalogued them, and a popular pastime is “Monroe bagging.” Interspersed among the Monroes, one can find medieval castles and ruins standing imposingly among the landscape.
In February 2008, four friend and I hopped in a rental car and pointed ourselves in the direction of Fort William. Along the way we visited tranquil castles. We only “bagged” one Monroe on that weekend – Am Bodach – and here are some of the photos from our journey.
