Finally find the time to select some of our astonishing pictures shot on Ardnamurchan for our first real walk on this peninsula.

Good to know:
Distance: 7 kms
Rate: easy
Map (incl. elevation information): Portuairk - Sanna Bay circular walk
GPS-track available for download: yes

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

After the short hike to the vulcano ridge, we went for a walk along the coast from Portuairk to Sanna Bay and back.

Start is from the small village Portuairk where you can park you car either at the crossing near the beach or a bit higher up the road. Elgar was eager to show the area to his new friend, Mr. Dip (Mr. Dip was given to us as a present from a colleague at the office who happens to know we walk around with a stuffed moose during our walks). The view is towards Sanna Bay and the sea.

The walk takes you along the waterfront and beaches of Sanna Bay. It feels as if you are in the Caribbean, with the bright blue / green colouring of the water.

We just returned from our summer holidays in Scotland. Sunny and warm weather combined with an unspoilt and undisturbed peninsula made it an unforgettable trip.

Ardnamurchan's crater (Scottish Gaelic: ''Ard na Murchan'': land of the great seas) is a 50 square mile peninsula and contains an abundance of wildlife. Its remoteness is accentuated by the main access route being a single track road for much of its length.

Good to know:
Distance: 3 kms
Rate: easy
GPS-track available for download: no

As always all photo's can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Our first walk, a very easy and short one, is a part of the Old School House Path, which starts just after you have passed the Sonachan hotel.

Why particularly that walk?
Because the whole north western corner of Ardnamurchan is a large "caldera" which is a crater left behind by a collapsed volcano. It is that crater that we wanted to see from a higher viewpoint and this track going slightly uphill takes you to the edge of the crater.

It has been rather a cold period here in our province, with temperatures dropping to -15 (and even colder) during the night and -3 during daytime. We even got 15 centimeters of snow, which normally disappears within a day but now after one week is still covering the ground. Here a just 3 pictures we took this weekend.

On June 6th, 2008 we crossed the borders of Austria and Italy via a mountain pass at 2509m. This pass, called the Timmelsjoch (or Passo del Rombo) connects the Oetztal valley (Austria, Tirol) with the Passer Valley (Adige Valley) in the Italian province of Bolzano-Bolzen.

Here is a view into the Passer valley on our way up to the Pass itself.

The road on the Italian side is steep, bending and narrow but breathtaking. Definitely worth some stops along the way up (The pass is closed however for lorries and vehicles with trailers due to elevation, steepness and the narrow road).
