The path up Ben Nevis, Scotland

The path up Ben Nevis, Scotland

It isn’t much of a path, but I took this to illustrate just how difficult the conditions can start to get as you climb up the tallest mountain in the UK. The path is not as steep as I expected, but it can be tricky to navigate in parts due to loose stone as you can see here. This was taken in mid-June so there were quite a few people walking up and down the mountainside.

Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland

Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland

Searching the website, this is the first photo of the Eilean Donan Castle that I have published. This is one of the most iconic images of Scotland and is situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some majestic scenery. As some of my photographer friends might say it is very “chocolate boxy”. The castle is now one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish highlands.

Wild Rabbit in the Grass

Wild Rabbit in the Grass

This was taken on a walk around Fort William in Scotland, when I was walking back to the hotel and noticed a wild rabbit sat there in a graveyard. It was a real one as I saw his ears moving as I snapped a couple of frames of him. Fortunately he did stay there long enough for me to get a relatively sharp picture of him.
