Scotland in Winter

On of my teenager dreams was to treck though Scotland. Like many things, it never happened, but I could not resist to accept the invitation of a friend to spend New Year 1994/5 near Fort Williams.

The landscape is harsh and appears alpine, even though one is just a few hundred meters above sea level.

In some sense, these are ideal conditions for some mild mountaineering. The little snow there is is very crisp and allows for easy climbing.

On the other hand, the days are very short. One has six hours at most to get up and down again. You don’t want to get lost there after dark.
