Glenfinnan

Was up here a couple of weeks ago for a friends ashes being scattered.
Smashing place for it too.

Outstanding Stu  
Fjord

Lovley photos of a stunning area.

Theres a new circular path under construction that takes you up to a great viewpoint overlooking the viaduct from the station.

 

No WiFi or 3g signal either... excellent!


Last but not least a great view of the monument

Alex Glass

Fantastic photos guys really is a place to visit by the looks of it.

Hogwarts Express anyone??

Wrong Loco - that's K1 62005, it doesn't come with a flying Ford Anglia.

BTW last time I was up there, back in 1988 you could get up to the top of the monument, remember it as being high enough to be quite scary with not a lot of space and a very low parapet wall.

You still can - as long as you're prepared to pay.

Here's another angle on the glen. I was off for a weekend in the hills.


You'll have to take my word for it, but this was Glen Finnan at 6 the next morning.
Alycidon

That last one is a stunner, well done.

Nothing beats being on top of a mountain looking down on a valley shrouded in mist/low cloud.

Well worth getting up for such a stunning picture.

Dead right, the Holy Grail of hillwalking. I've been lucky, must have seen about a dozen inversions - Ime and Narnain, Ben More, Mamores, Suilven, Canisp come to mind.

Hi strepadair, that looks a lot higher than I have ever been, great photos
streapadair

Wasn't even 3000', Norrie. Never been up Ben Lomond, Lawers, Tarmachan?
norrie

Looks high to me, I have only done about 4 or 5 Munros, Ben Lomond being one of them

I was in among the clouds on Thursday, Broughten Heights and that got the heart pumping It cleared for our return and we could see the ups and down to get to the trig point, nice down that way, plenty of hills that are fine for our group of walkers

Another different view of Glenfinnan.

Good clear film, can you take stills from the film or while in flight?
cybers

Both.... It has a dedicated 12mp camera with live feedback so I can see what it see's. On the controller there is two buttons one for video one for Still.
Unfortunately after another trip round the North Coast 500 weather kept it grounded.

This opens up a new way of looking at things, look forward to seeing your shots
