Glen Nevis, Scotland

One of the country’s most dramatic landscapes, Glen Nevis is an exceptionally beautiful part of the United Kingdom. The stretch of ancient unspoilt scenery, overlooked by Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest mountain), is perfect for peaceful walking and truly getting away from it all. This area is also great for wildlife watching and film location visiting – many key scenes from Braveheart, Rob Roy and Harry Potter were shot here.

Weekly Hobby Roundup: Episode 23

This week was rather eventful for me.
Firstly, I managed to finish the Cataphractii Terminators for my Iron Warriors Horus Heresy army.

These models were a pleasure to paint, and I do think the Forgeworld legion-specific shoulder pads are worth the money, even though they were a pain to glue into place.

All that’s left now for the army is a final tactical squad, contemptor Dreadnought and a Legion Praetor in Cataphractii armour.

Over the weekend, I took a trip up to Fort William for a couple of days to do some exploring and hillwalking.
The weather was fantastic and I had a great time, even getting to walk up to an ancient Iron Age Fort overlooking Ben Nevis!
Also, I think I might have been the only person in Britain to be reading the latest White Dwarf whilst hillwalking, even got a selfie with the magazine in the crags of Glen Nevis!
Goes to show that no matter what you are doing, there’s always time for some Hobbying!

Next week I will be making a start on the final tactical squad for the Iron Warriors.

Happy Hobbying!

Ancient hillfort to be excavated in Lochaber

Archaeologists are preparing for the first ever excavation of an ancient hillfort in Lochaber.

Dun Deardail was constructed on a prominent knoll on Sgorr Chalum, a hill overlooking the River Nevis in Glen Nevis. AOC Archaeology, which will lead volunteers in the dig, has described the site as “enigmatic”.

Little is known about the origins of the fort, who built it or when it was constructed.

The first phase in a three-year project will examine the defences.

They were vitrified, meaning stone and wood in the defensive walls were burned at a high temperature for a long time to fuse the stone together. Read more.
