Ruadh Stac Mhor Sunlight

August 2012Photography
Read More
Each year, the Great Wilderness Challenge takes place in one of Scotland's wildest areas; a gruelling endurance sporting event which, over the last 27 years, has raised just under £2.5 million pounds for charity. The large entry of walkers and runners are assisted by many volunteers; organisers, marshalls and safety support teams. Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team provides safety cover for the 25 mile route from Corrie Hallie at Dundonnell, through the hills to Poolewe; a distance of some 25 miles. Two way radios allow the team members at checkpoints to communicate with each other, relaying information and progress reports. We provide a radio link from the summit of Ruadh Stac Mhor which ensures that team members can communicate along the length of the route and with each of the checkpoints. Ruadh Stac Mhor is the immediate neighbour to A'Mhaighdean, itself regarded by most as the remotest of the Scottish Munros.

Since 2005, I have enjoyed the experience of making it to the summit of Ruadh Stac Mhor the night before, camping out on the summit and providing the link to other checkpoints during the event. Some years, the weather is distinctly dismal; wet, misty, windy and cold. But when the light and the weather are right, there is no better viewpoint.

Arisaig Sea Kayaking

July 2012Photography
Read More
A few days in Arisaig and an opportunity to use our kayaks to explore the surrounding area and the wonderful coastline. With paddling trips to the Arisaig skerries, to Koydart and taking some time to chill and to enjoy time together, this was quality time. Making use of capable boats, great weather and the urge to explore, we toured the area and found our way into some beautiful nooks and crannies along the coastline.

Sea Kayaking in Oban

Easter 2012Photography
Read More
Easter and an opportunity for the first trip away of the year. Having been attracted to kayaking over the winter, Tania and I had booked ourselves three days with Sea Kayak Oban and were looking forward to adding another string to our bow.

Hitching on the caravan for the first tow of the year, we headed to North Ledaig and one of our favourite pitches - next to the beach with cracking views across the Firth of Lorne, towards the Isle of Mull.

About Scotland360°

Featuring web based, interactive images and video of Scotland and the Scottish outdoors, there are several key themes running through the site.

Scottish mountain photography, sea kayaking photography around Scotland's beautiful and varied coastline, Scottish landscapes and iconic locations in Scotland are all showcased within the website.

Compiled from images taken over the last 35 years of living, working and exploring in the Highlands, this website is a resource, a shop window and a travelogue featuring Scotland as I know and enjoy it. I hope my photography inspires you to enjoy the land and the locations as much as I do.
