Aussies, Easter and snow
Take us somewhere remote and scenic

Aussies Up From London
A great brief from the clients, they wanted to go somewhere 'with great views, remote and away from people'

Much nicer than 'take us up the highest mountain' and a chance to let them explore a small part of Scotland

How easy would that be at Easter weekend?
What They Got
A day without seeing anyone until the last 30 minutes, rain, snow, great sunshine, big smiles

The route was from Kinlochleven, taking in views of the Grey Mares Tail waterfall, along a little used stalkers path, passing through woodland with lichen clad trees and burns flowing through

Perfect views and bright sunshine at their highest point

A small herd of deer (hinds - females) were spotted descending. Very appropriate as Eilde means hind and is used to name the 2 hills and lochs in the area
