Comp Soc Hillwalking Adventures Around Loch Muick Scotland 13 Oct 2012 [03:43]
Is RGU CompSoc a Computer Society or a Hillwalking Club? That's a question we ask ourselves every time we venture into the wilds of Scotland for a bit of adventure. This time we headed about 60km west of Aberdeen to Loch Muick, just a few miles south west of Ballater. As you can see it was quite an overcast and damp day but everybody really had a great time. In all about twenty students and academics joined in the fun, some took the easy option of just quickly going around the track that located just meters from the loch itself. The other dozen as you can see from this video decided to take a slightly more adventurous up into the cloud covered hills. I kept on thinking that our journey through the misty and cloud covered hills around the loch were a bit like the journey of the fellowship of the ring trying to cross the misty mountains. In one scene from our adventures you can probably think of a very similar scene from the Fellowship of the Ring where the Hobbits, Humans,Dwarf, Elf & Wizard make their way in single file across the ridge of a mountain shortly after commencing their quest from the elven outpost of Rivendell. In our case we are in single file, but one of the main differences is that you can just barely see us given the cloud cover. As we all know the depiction of Middle-Earth was recorded in New Zealand, given its wondrous landscapes, I do wonder however that it could also have been shot in Scotland.

Arran Coastal Way (1) [PRIVATE -Copyright track claim is incorrect] [10:04]
A £25.00 open return from Glasgow enables the return train and Calmac ferry service to Brodick (and up to a month on the island) from where the Arran Coastal Way beckons. Once disembarked, the Way heads along the promenade with immediate views of Goatfell across Brodick Bay. "Gaoda Bheinn" is the highest point on the Isle at 874m (thats 2867ft in old money!) and is one of four Corbetts on the island as well as being the 16th Highest Marilyn in the British Isles. The mountain along with nearby Brodick Castle is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland and the name Brodick comes from the Norse words meaning 'broad bay'. Tourists head to Arran Aromatics and the Island Cheese Company. Arran itself is a small island just 20 miles long and 56 miles round and is located off the south-west coast of Scotland and is approximately a dozen plus miles across the Firth of Clyde thereby making it easily accessible and has been described as "the top of a submerged mountain range". In the Gaelic it means 'peaked island' and the mild climate of the Gulf Stream enables Palm trees to grow there, although they are not true Palms but Palm Lilies, a variety native to New Zealand. The island is cut in half by the Highland Boundary Fault, a geological division that makes the north rugged and hilly and host to some superb mountains, whereas the south is more gentle and lower lying. Often called 'Scotland in miniature', its range and wealth of scenery and coastline was once referred to in days ...
