Glencoe, Scotland

Scotland is on the itinerary of every self-respecting traveler. :) I was there many years ago, in the summer, and this March I was lucky enough to revisit, partly for work, partly for pleasure. While early spring is a nice time to travel as there aren't many tourists around, it can also get a bit tricky to find accommodation in some remote parts as B&Bs are simply not open!

I'll start with Glencoe - a wonderful glen in the Scottish Highlands.

Rannoch Moor in the morning

Every photographer wants to take a shot from this place with Buachaille Etive Mor and the Etive river in the foreground:

Green (well, not really green yet as it was only March) mountains:
Slopes of the Three Sisters

My little Audi was a lot of fun to drive:

In the valley of Glen Etive I hardly met any other people:

After waiting for the sunset for over an hour my Scottish friend and coworker Alastair and I were rewarded with this view over Rannoch Moor:
