Beautiful Scotland   30 comments

On my recent visit to Scotland I spent a bit of time with my Nephews, over a few cold beers we talked about the beauty of Scotland, the flora and fauna, like the salmon making it’s way up stream to lay her eggs, red squirrels collecting nuts for the cold winter ahead and young deer scratching at the snow for some winter grass to eat.

This got me thinking and we made a decision to venture out the following day and check out some of Scotland’s wildlife.

Now you may be thinking how I don my thermals and waterproofs, fill a backpack with essentials like spare water, barley sugar sweets, one of those foil sheets, a GPS, shave off my moustache but keep my beard, grab my hiking pole and head off, after of course informing family and friends of where we are going and when we will be back.

Thats what a sensible person would do, but i’m an offshore worker and a petrol head so we took this.

A V8.




Found a bit of snow on the top of the mountain.





We aren’t stuck here, just changing drivers.





You don’t need to follow a track in this beast, as long as the trees have been cut down.




I don’t know what all the fuss is about now, we didn’t see any wildlife.

No tree or any wildlife was hurt in the making of this post. Have a great weekend.

  1. Really cool images Mark. Love that first shot where you show a closeup of the Land Rover. Looks like a lot of fun.

  2. I expect the wildlife were watching you, wondering what on earth this strange blue monster could be. Is there any heating in that thing by the way? It looks as if it might have been a tad chilly.

  3. It was probably making to much noise and scared the animals!!! Cool ride though and ill bet you has a blast!!!

  4. That’s too funny. Terrific images. So is it a smooth ride 🙂

  5. That was the easy-ozy trail-blazing experience.

  6. Whooooaaaaa. If I was American I’d say AWESOME!!! That’s a s.e.r.i.o.u.s. petrol monster. Wonder if you actually did get to see any wildlife *quietly* approaching furry animals’n all that, ha!
    Bet you had a fun day, certainly looks it ^_^

  7. If that makes the sort of noise that would be commensurate with it’s looks then I would think all the wildlife might have done a disappearing act. LOL! That is a proper 4WD off-roader. I guess you all had a load of fun.

  8. Of course you didn’t see any wildlife. If I saw that coming I’d hide too! Great machine!

  9. I thought i would see some nice landscapes but I did not 🙂 I do like what i saw 🙂

  10. Now that, my friend, looks like a blast! Great work, have a great weekend!

  11. WOW! That is one tough looking piece of machinery! I could use that to get to the train station on snowy days. Looks like it would be a blast to ride around in! Great shots!

  12. looks like a rough and tough thing 🙂

  13. Yeah not surprised you didn’t see any wildlife! But that sure is a handsome beast 😀

  14. Great shots! I love scotland too! i went there for about 3 weeks a few years ago!

  15. That is quite a terrain monster. Looks like you had some real fun even without any wildlife. Great photos.

  16. Great shots.
