ABC Revisiting P

During our visit to the  Scottish Highlands last year we hiked the peak                               Stac Pollaidh, pronounced Stack Polly.  The summit is a crest of sandstone with lots of pinnacles and gullies. It is a bit over 2000 feet in elevation.  

Our whole group started out from the carpark across the road. The heather covered base of the mountain was a lovely hike. 


While the younger members of our group scaled the crumbly peak, we seniors enjoyed the view of Cul Mor, the mountain we had claimed the previous day. Rain and mist are part of the mystique of the Highlands. You can just imagine Brigadoon appearing and disappearing right before your eyes.
 Back around all the way and down, Stac Pollaidh was the last peak we hiked that week.
ABC Wednesday once again at the letter P. Next week will be interesting.

Pure Scottish Magic.

You can see Stac Pollaidh from the Isle of Lewis - its outline is so distinctive. I'm envious that you've been up the lower part of it.

Looks like a scene out of Close Encounters. My ABC Wednesday this week is Pink!
