The summit of Angel’s Peak which we climbed at night to watch the sunrise over the mountains. A sensational sight never forgotten by Anthony Sargeant. Taken a little after the first break of dawn some of the morning mist which at first light carpeted the valleys like a sea below us is still clinging to the shade of the hillsides. Steve Lee turns to face camera.

Black Spout Gulley on Lochnagar at the top of the scree slope which was our route to the top of the mountain. Photographed by Tony Sargeant. We climbed up into low cloud and mist on the mountain but when descending on the other side the clouds suddenly parted to reveal the central highlands laid out before us.

Mark Baxter taking a photograph of the Country House Hotel where we stopped for lunch on the way to the Cairngorms by coach from Aberdeen. We had traveled to Aberdeen on the overnight sleeper from London. Mr (Jock) Gordon, one of the two teachers on the trip, had arranged the lunch with the woman who ran the hotel and who was a friend of his. It was the last taste of civilization for two weeks.
