North-West Highlands June 2012
Torridon: like a land out of myth, where the mountains bare their fangs. Great forms rising sheer from the very bedrock of the earth, kin of Morgoth, or Jormungandr, waiting for the world's end
A collection of idiosyncratic peaks rising from a landscape shaped by glaciers, weather, and - above all - eons of time: the rocks here are 800 million years old, and sit on bedrock a quarter the age of the universe.
