Winter Backpacking & Wild Camping Gear | Amazing Mountain Cloud Inversion in Glencoe.

Winter Backpacking & Wild Camping Gear | Amazing Mountain Cloud Inversion in Glencoe.

My initial plan was to do my first wild camping of the year and some landscape photography from one of the summits in Glencoe, Scotland.

However the weather looked bad in the forecasts so I called the trip off at the last minute. A decision that I will definitely regret.

Later that evening after looking at the Glencoe Ski Centre webcams it looked like I missed one of the most amazing evenings I could have had on the mountain tops.

You could just see the very tops of the mountains poking through a thick cloud inversion and a stunning pink sunset across the horizon.

Based on the views from the webcam and aware of a snow front heading in from the west early morning I decided to head up for sunrise in Glencoe to see what might happen.

I was lucky to witness a stunning cloud inversion through the valley of Glencoe and it gave me the opportunity to capture one landscape photograph that I think is my personal favourite to date.

I have also included a short gear guide in the video dedicated to what equipment I had planned on taking in regards to wildcamping and also a little walk around the new Kingshouse Hotel that has recently been built.

Despite their modest height, walking and climbing in any mountains may be made treacherous by their latitude and exposure to weather systems. Even in summer, conditions can be atrocious; thick fog, strong winds, driving rain and freezing summit temperatures are commonplace. The content shown in my films are just my own opinions, thoughts and as a way to record my trips. WARNING – Walking and hiking in the mountains & hills can be dangerous and is done entirely at your own risk.
