I'm rather reluctant to post this but would like advice so here goes - I know there was potential for this to be good but all I did were a few snaps and no tripod and high ISO.

Thanks Click and Jack!

The route I followed was quite long (17km) but very enjoyable thanks to the perfect combo of sun and a cooling breeze. The best thing was that although Arran as a whole was mobbed (bank holiday coinciding with whisky and cycling festival), the less popular routes like this were almost deserted. I was out for 9 hours and only met two other walkers!

Very nice shots, GammyKnee.   :)

I'd kill for that hike, figuratively of course.

17km! really does beg the question, how's the knee?  :o

This is on my doorstep and I've never been I should be ashamed

Yes 9 hours is a lot of walking/climbing on second thought but I'd be scheming how I could survive it survive.   ;)

I'm very happy to report that both my knees made it through the whole thing without even a grumble  :)

I made a small change to how I was doing leg extensions at the gym a while back and they've been great ever since. It just goes to show: if you find the right corrective exercise you can shift even very longstanding problems.

Definitely do this walk when you have a chance though! The Arran hills are as good as any in Scotland!

My son graduates next spring and My wife and I planning to go over to London England for that and the three of us would travel around.  Where I have no idea but my father was born in Yorkshire so we'd definitely head north.  He threatened that I should never rent a car due to left side driving (not sure why he didn't offer to drive - a sissy I guess) so not sure what is feasible relative to getting up to Scotland.  Any thoughts.

Small world - I grew up in West Yorkshire! Moved to Scotland for uni and never went back.

There's no way I'd drive all that way from London; maybe 30 years ago when roads were less congested and in better shape. Far better to get the train or fly to the region you're interested in, then rent a vehicle to get about more easily, and just try to steer clear of morning and evening rush hour traffic. For the west of and north of Scotland, mid to late May nearly always has the most consistently good weather.
