If there is one aspect of Scotland that never fails to inspire and enthrall, it is the mountainous, rugged landscape. From the green, lush landscape of the Glens to the Munros, the Corbetts and the majesty of Ben Nevis, it is a landscape that holds a powerful, almost magnetic attraction for many. Evidence of the power of nature, many Scottish mountains are the by-products of not only volcanic activity but the ice age too. Rising with supreme beauty, no one should take to the Scottish mountains lightly: as much as they are beautiful, they are deadly. And yet, climbers and walkers flock here, as do nature lovers and keen photographers. Where else do you find such variation in geological history?
