Occasional Ramblings with a Camera

This blog is my occasional ramblings on here, there and about, with and very occasionally without a camera. Photography, art, landscape (principally Scottish), heritage and wildlife are the things that interest me the most, so thats what I'll be writing about and of course showing pictures of. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, well I'm not so sure about that but if it is then great as it will save me a heap of typing, all power to the image.

Fold above Allt Coire Shith - zoomable panorama

The fold is on quite a considerable slope that is difficult to portray at this angle. Like many folds it's half way up the hillside, a possibly more contemporary fold is located down by the stream that you can zoom into. Not mentioned in the Canmore records above is that on the slight track back towards Gleann Taitneach is a short wall section, approximately 20m. long going up the hillside with the path cutting mid way through. With the general layout I'm guessing it was both a gentle barrier preventing livestock from then dropping back down into Gleann Taitneach and also to help guide them through the gap down from or up to the shieling grounds, preventing them straying too far and wide.
