  • I wonder what's up there?

    I have driven past this steel ladder in Glen Strathfarrar many times over the years and always wondered why it was there; well today I stopped and climbed up:

    1.

    There wasn't much up there apart from a hill and a few concrete pillars which much must be to do with the surveying and building of this down below:

    2.
    (The verticals have gone to pot)

    Anyway I thought I may as well climb the hill for the view and what a view, time for a pano me thinks...

    3.


    Here is the view back down the glen to the east:

    4.

    And here are a few views from back down the glen looking west

    Apologies for the number of images, thanks for looking

    Lovely views Iain but that pano is a real treat.
    I think they seem to look even better on here than on Flickr for some reason.

          I think that view in #3 is reason enough for the ladder being there.

            Hello Iain,
            Great shots especially the panorama, good you had blue skies, I was out on Thursday above Callander and it was grey all day. I see you've still got plenty of snow up there. No.6 is good with the swan to give a sense of scale.
            Regards Jim.

                Judging by those views it's obviously a Stairway to Heaven.

                    Just beautiful Iain.
                    Your landscapes always make me feel as if I am standing right there beside you.
                    No favourite, each photo was enthralling.

                              The 3rd shot is the pick for me. Great lines.
