Walking in the Scottish Highlands

I was lucky enough to be chosen as today's Photo of the Day in Let's be Wild, an online magazine dedicated to publishing stories and pictures of people travelling and adventuring around the world.

The photo they chose was one I took late in the day from near the top of the Munro, Bheinn Bheoil, in the Central Highlands of Scotland. As this peak is located 17km from the nearest roadside, we cycled in the day before and spent the night at Culra bothy. In the morning, we scrambled up Ben Alder's Long Leachas ridge before heading down to a bealach just out of picture to the right. We then followed the ridge up to Bheinn Bheoil's summit.

I hung back to take photos on the way up and snapped this shot looking back as some nice light broke through the clouds and lit up Loch Ericht.
