They happened upon exceptional weather and they were able to appreciate the majesty and outstanding beauty of the landscape near Roshven, which overlooks the islands of Rum and Eigg.

The next time Christina and Guy visit the Highlands, they are going to journey by train which is considered by many to be the most scenic rail journey in the world, the West Highland Line leaves Glasgow behind and delves deep into the wild west coast.
