Ladhar Beinn and Loch Hourn

Loch Hourn

Knoydart, Scotland

In early June of 2016 I began my trip to a long and awaited visit to the Knoydart. Famously known as 'Britain's last Wilderness' it's a wild and remote peninsular only accessible by boat or by foot. I chose to do the latter and spend 3 nights wild camping but as I was to find out, the soaring heat and a 27kg+ pack would prove to be the hardest hikes I've ever done. Loch Hourn marks the northern border of the Knoydart and is one of the most impressive lochs in Scotland. Dominating the end of the peninsular and central to this image is Ladhar Bheinn (pronounced 'Laavain'). It is one of the most remote Scottish munros (a mountain over 3000ft) and was my main goal for the trip.
