The Highlands :: As “Terras Altas”

Last week I have returned to the Highlands for some short holidays. I have been in Fort William, Glencoe valley, Oban, Ardnamurchan and the isle of Skye. It was a lot for five days, but it was worthwhile to be in such beautiful places with my family.

One of the things that striked me the most was the imposing landscape, the cliffs meeting the sea, the green and the water present anywhere. And beyond the magnificent sceneries there is an immense diversity of life. I loved it all… the impressive scenery and the small details.

A semana passada regressei às “Terras Altas” para umas mini-férias. Passei por Fort William, pelo vale de Glencoe, Oban, Ardnamurchan e pela ilha de Skye. Foi muito para cinco dias, mas valeu a pena estar em lugares tão espectaculares com a família.

Uma das coisas que mais me impressionou foi a grandiosidade da paisagem, o encontro dos penhascos com o mar e o verde sempre presente. E além da magnificência da paisagem há uma diversidade de vida imensa. Adorei tudo… as paisagens imponentes e os pequenos detalhes.
