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

Attitudes and Altitude: a new Sidetracked project, and a journey across the Alps

I'll be spending much of the rest of the summer in the Alps, trekking and a bit of running from Ventimiglia to Zermatt. It's going to be an incredible adventure. I can't wait to begin.
