A weekend in Glencoe

Last weekend I went on a weekend hiking trip to the highlands of Scotland. I went with Breakaway, which is the hill-walking society at St. Andrews. They organize hill walking trips to different parts of beautiful Scotland, and it’s quite popular amongst international students.

This particular trip was to Glencoe, (where they filmed Skyfall!). After being in St. Andrews for awhile, you think that you know what Scotland is all about. The Highlands are such a different experience, away from the cities of Scotland. I don’t think any words can really capture the experience of being surrounded by these majestic mountains.

In an attempt to convey the experience, I’ve uploaded some photos, and a rough video compilation. But really, nothing replaces the experience of going yourself!
