Outdoor adventure in Scotland

In the desolate wilderness of Scotland, nature provides both majestic scenery and changeable weather, reports Nick Bramhall on his blog.

At the Traveling Reporter we always appreciate good nature photography. It just so happened that Nick Bramhall with his blog about Scotland, The Mountain’s Silhouette, was able to provide a mighty fine set of photos from Cona Glen, Scotland, where he went for a hike in April, 2013. Nick gave the Reporter permission to repost some of his photos, so here we go.

He reports from his hike:

I found myself making an early get-away from Aberdeen on a Friday morning and driving west through an ever changing mixture of sunshine, cloud-covered mountains and rain showers to reach the Corran Ferry south of Fort William. This glided across the glassy waters of Loch Linnhe to Ardgour and just a few miles north of the pier I parked up at the entrance to Cona Glen, one of the glens that runs east-west through the eastern end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula.


The rain came on heavier and I stopped to put on my waterproofs but beyond the locked cottage of Corriarach it slacked and then eased off completely, dark grey skies to bright sunshine in just a minute or two. As lunchtime had passed during the shower I left the track and paused down by the river for a wrap. The remarkable views pulled me onward and soon enough I was in the upper reaches of the glen.
