This series of articles showcases blogs of merit and interest, usually (but not exclusively!) connected with the topics of mountaineering, Scotland, writing, and history.

I discovered this blog fairly recently, after a certain article of stunning Scottish mountain photos was sent to me by a Twitter follower. Self powered doesn’t focus exclusively on any single theme, although most of the articles look at the subjects of mountaineering, Scotland, and the environment.What sets self powered apart from other blogs, in my opinion, is the incredible standard of photography, coupled with sparse and powerful writing. This isn’t a wordy blog – the author lets his pictures tell the story. He only tends to post a few times a month but the articles tend to be good!Some particularly excellent posts:Nothing Ventured…Big Mountain Days on Culra’s Sleeping GiantsAn Alpine EasterAutumn Hobo, 2 wheeled pilgrim

Seek the mayglow while you can, for it is fleeting

May has long been one of my favourite months of the year, but it's not all about Scottish Alpine spring, as you might expect from a mountaineer based in Scotland. One of the things I have learnt about myself is that I need more from nature than mountains.
