Scotland – Ben Nevis


Better weather today and so the highest mountain in Scotland (Great Britain actually) was the goal. Quite a walk: 1344 meters high and the starting point is at 10 meters above sea level. A shame that the actual sumit was in the clouds, so no spectaculair views from there. But otherwise great climb (and actually pretty sunny most of the time). Photos below:

Scotland – The Highlands


Unfortunately the weather was too bad to actually go into the highlands on foot. The Ben Hope (the most Northern Munroe) was on the program, but that was not to be. But the tour of the higlands by car was great too. Below some of the photos.

Scotland – Inverness


Some photos from Inverness, Scotland. Not to great weather, probably only half the temperature compared to Holland. But at least it’s dry. Germany Vs Urugay coming up. Let’s see what that will bring.
