Out up and early for another landscape photography trip. This time I decided to revisit the stunning area around the Bridge of Orchy.
This is an area I had walked through a few years earlier and remember it having some very scenic views. You can park down over the bridge just down behind the Hotel which is located on the A82 road to Glencoe.
This lets you walk a small section of the West Highland Way that takes you to the top of the hills in this area with stunning views over Loch Tulla and the surrounding mountains.
You can also drive round by the Loch which let me explore a smalls section of the Glen looking for interesting compositions and just spend some time amongst the mountains. Most of the snow had now melted but the high tops still had their winter coat on, making for some spectacular scenes.
Film and photography taken using ‘Sony A7R2 & Sony A6300’.

Despite their modest height, walking and climbing in the Scottish mountains may be made treacherous by their latitude and exposure to Atlantic weather systems. Even in summer, conditions can be atrocious; thick fog, strong winds, driving rain and freezing summit temperatures are commonplace. The content shown in my films are just my own opinions, thoughts and as a way to record my trips. Walking and hiking in the Scottish mountains & hills can be dangerous and is done entirely at your own risk.
Hazards you may encounter include:
Open moorland Terrain, few distinct landmarks, difficult navigation.
Crags and steep drops near summits.
River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.
Snow and ice on summits even in early summer.
Sudden changes in weather conditions.
Temperature decreases by 1 degree C for every 100m of ascent.
You are responsible for your own safety.
Are you fit enough to complete your chosen walk in the available time?
Ensure you have the correct clothing for the changeable Scottish weather.
Know where you are going on the walk and follow the route on your map.
At the very least carry a map & compass, survival bag, head torch, whistle and small first aid kit.
Ensure you have enough food plus emergency rations.
Do not rely on your mobile phone as cold temperatures will significantly reduce the life of your battery.
In severe winter conditions you should carry an ice axe, crampons and be competent in there use.
