This one's for Beekay. The newly constructed footbridge over Ousdale Burn at the bottom of the gorge. Note "1 person at a time, please". It's quite flimsy but does the job.  I crouched on this bridge when taking the photo of the burn.

Hillwalking in Scotland always carries teh risk of hill fog. It is essential that walkers learn compass reading skills before cventuring out alone. Here's a photo of a typical summer day in the mountains:
