Great pics looks like a awesome place to hang out. Is there any trout in that stream? I would have had to do some fishing.
Much of the Cairngorm region looks very similar, it's a mix of high heather moorland, rounded summits around 3-4000ft, winding glens with patches of the old Caledonian forest remaining, i.e big old pines, the ground is covered in either bilberries or heather, sandy under foot.
Nice report. Where exactly is it? Is this southern Scotland or Pennines in England? Just curious. I really love the odd pine trees and weird undergrowth--can't think of any part of Canada that is quite like it.

Well,,,, sorry if i'm taking us off topic a bit here . I've looked at these watercolors for years yearning to see it and realizing i probably won't. I went to the book of prints ,his Scotland collection and also the map of the Caingorms you provided a link to. Looks like a number of paintings are in the park.
Dee Valley and Inverclaud,,,,,and lots of others,,,,only makes sense he'd spend a bit of time in the park as THE Cottage is down the Dee.
Anyway really enjoyed the pics Rich.

Excellent report and some very beautiful scenery. I always enjoy seeing the different wilderness setting that other countries offer. Thanks for taking us on a tour thru the heather fields!
"The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can.
Pursuing it with eager feet
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."
