Scotland the Brave

The Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge.

The memorial commemorates the 20000 Special Forces soldiers of the Second World War, who trained in the surrounding glens and mountains. We were staying nearby for a week of much milder adventure, paddling the local whitewater rivers and squeezing in a bit of mountain biking to boot. All of the most intense and best paddling tended to take place in gloomy pouring rain in the half hour after sunset…this is always the way with UK river trips…so there are just a few mild daylight photos here. Thanks to my friend Steve for the last pic, showing myself.
