Glen Coe area, Scottish Highlands
This, apparently, is Meall a'Bhuiridh, a mountain on the edge of Glen Coe, and obviously unpronounceable (something like Me All A Blueberry or Me Eyes Are Blurry, but don't quote me). So we'll just be calling it 'the mountain' henceforth, okay?
Having driven past The Mountain on our way to Fort William, we recalled seeing a sign for a chairlift so we took a punt to see if it was open in summer. It was, and this was good because I'm far too lazy to climb a big hill. There was almost no-one around, the view was fantastic and we got to see a man with no shirt on, working up a sweat on the side of the mountain. The poor guy was probably dying of heatstroke, it being high summer an' all.
We also managed to have another ramble around on the lower bits of the Glen Coe area which was altogether very pleasant.
Oh. I know what you're thinking: Glen Coe or Glencoe? I'll try to explain it simply so your brain doesn't explode: Glen Coe is a volcanic glen and Glencoe is a small village. There now dear reader, you can rest easy knowing you're not going completely mad.
