"The Lairig Ghru is one of the most visually striking and imposing glens in the Scottish Highlands. The valley is located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park beneath many of the largest mountains in the country; a raw and rugged landscape carved from Scotland's glacial past. On my final evening in the glen I hiked to the summit of Devil’s Point to photograph the epic scale of the valley from above. I was rewarded with the most beautiful sunset and incredible view."
