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

5.

6.

7.

8.

Apologies for the number of images, thanks for looking

Re: I wonder what's up there?

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.

Re: I wonder what's up there?

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

Re: I wonder what's up 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.
