Compo

Out and about with Compo

Recommended Posts

Travelling   with Compo without moving from your own home. They are really fantastic views and nice to see a bit of history too. There must be loads of undiscovered places up there in the north of Scotland. Keep them coming they're the type of photos we love to see.

 Anyrode up, I will post some pictures a couple at a time in order to try and fool whatever is deleting my photos soon after posting :)

 

And after 24 hours, they're still visible and haven't disappeared. Whatever you're now doing, keep doing it.

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.

On Ben unpronounceable in the north west of Scotland we met an odd tribe of hairy men. They approached us and said "We're the fuckarwe" :)

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:
