Deep Freeze Mountains, Scotland

 I am still sorting through photo’s and I came across theses spectacular views of ‘Deep Freeze Mountains’.  I took them on last years holiday in 2014, when we did a wonderful tour of Scotland in our motor home.  I read that this view, is just a small part of the Geopark in Sutherland, Scotland, which covers an area of 2000 square kilometers of dramatic scenery. The blue grey mountains of which there are many, have been likened to sleeping giant animals standing on their feet, each one unique……not sure if I could make out any shapes, but they were breathtaking to stand and wonder at 🙂

    1. From what I can make out they were formed in the ice age…. I think, They are very beautiful and we didn’t know they were there, so it was a nice surprise 🙂

      1. I decided to google Deep Freeze Mountains and the second thing on the list is this blog entry. How on earth do they do that?!

  1. I found a couple short items that said basically the same thing. The mountains were carved out by glaciers. They are the hardest rock so the glaciers didn’t take them. Those are tough mountains. 🙂

    1. Yes there wasn’t much on there, there was some on the board, the photo I took, but some reason I didn’t take a close of the details. The area where they are is quite close to the top of Scotland and at that point you are quite high anyway and then you start to get these mountains, when you have spent most of the day driving upwards 🙂 Its strange though once you get to the very top of Scotland, its very flat, you have left all the mountains behind, you have reached the summit. Then its downhill all the way home 🙂

    1. Yes its an amazing area, we are going to the west coast and some islands, hopefully at the start of September, fingers crossed we both get some good weather 🙂

      1. Tee Hee!! Yes indeed…and having relocated from the flatlands of Norfolk 15 years ago, we never forget to appreciate its beauty.

  2. We have just passed through this area 3 weeks ago…..its an awe inspiring place…..nothing to be seen except glacial valleys and mountains!!!
