Scotland '13


At the end of July 2013 I headed down to Esbjerg, Denmark, to catch the ferry to Harwich, UK, for the last time as the route would be abandoned.

Took about 1.700 photos.

Harwich to Abington

Arrived (30th) in Harwich, UK, and headed North to outside Richmond.

Continued North to Abington (31st), visiting Wanlockhead and Leadhills.

Quick visit (1st) to New Lanark to see mill.

Abington to Glen Nevis

Fulfilled another dream heading up Glen Roy (4th) to view the parallel roads and “threw away caution” and headed up gully of Glen Nevis to Steall Waterfall, finishing of the day enjoying the sun shining on Ben Nevis and surrounding hills (like Sgùrr a'Mhaim).

Glen Nevis to Glenshiel

Headed even further North (6th) to Glenshiel to visit Dornan and Eilean Donan Castle and village of Plockton.

My first ever visit to Skye (7th) started at Eilean Donan Castle and then lead to (busy) Portree and Dunvegan - both “skipped” - and then headed back, enjoying Cuillin mountains.

Glenshiel to Inverness

A final push North (8th) to Inverness, viewed by foot, and a visit (9th) to Nairn.
