Photographer's Note

It had snowed through the night, but the roads were clear and the sun was trying to get out, so we decided to walk through Glen Tilt. We were staying in Blair Atholl, where Blair Castle is located, the headquarters of the Atholl Estates of which Glen Tilt is a part. (Glen = valley) Glen Tilt is a narrow glen and the walk goes up one side of the river and back down on the other side. It is a 10 mile walk (16km), but it can be shortened to 6 miles (9.5km). We kept our options open until we reached the point of no return at Gilbert’s Bridge. The weather was still fine so we decided to walk the full 10 miles and crossed the river over Gow’s bridge. We did run into a blizzard about 3 miles before the end.

This shot was taken on the way back, but looking back the way we had come. The sun was on those mountains all the way, although where we were walking was in and out of shade. This clear track was unusual as most of the way was through either pasture, forest or rough ground. You’ll see what I mean if you look in the WS.
