Thanks, Richard. I'll post some more later. Yes, we do have scree slopes here (which I hate) but this hill at the east end (where this was taken) there is no scree. It's very steep and the path is quite rocky so can be slippery when wet. The lower part of the path has been built up and is a bit like stairs alternating with good path. However, the higher you get the rockier, rougher and more varied it gets and some easy scrambling is involved. The man-made built path doesn't go beyond about 350m altitude.
Thanks Annie. Re tracks. We had a Scottish stone track maker do a lot of work on our highland tracks several years ago.
I've walked some and they're magnificent and beautiful. Real craftsmanship.

Here's another view from my hike on Saturday. It's the view of Beinn Eighe in the Torridon Hills (Scotland) from the east top of Liathach. You can see there is a lot of scree on Beinn Eighe.
Beautiful scenery indeed.
We had a very prominent photographer who came from Scotland and loved our wilderness. I can see he had much to value from his homeland.
John Watt Beattie was an Australian photographer. Beattie was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was elected as a fellow of the Royal Society of Tasmania in 1890. He was appointed Photographer to the Government of Tasmania on 21 December 1896.
