I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Photoshop painting - Sgor na h-Ulaidh

The idea for this Photoshop painting came from my friend John Proud who said he would like to have a picture just showing the colours  and texture on a Scottish hillside without it necessarily having any other objective. When I was browsing through my Munro photos I came across this pic which I thought may be along the lines that John was thinking of. The Munro in the background is Sgor na h-Ulaidh which lies hidden behind, and to the south of the hills seen on the left descending through Glencoe, as well as being hidden by cloud on the day. My ascent on 8th October 2008 accessed the hill from Glen Etive.
Others may disagree, but I found it interesting that a somewhat nondescript photo could provide a more interesting painting.


  1. You are becoming accomplished at this Sir Hugh and I do find this painting appealing.

  2. Afoot - Thanks for your kind words. I have another one on the way. It shows the rocks on the steep side of Clachnaban which I am sure you will be familiar with.
