We know you love photos but we also know that not everyone follows us on Twitter, so we wanted to bring you some of the highlights and the chat that goes with the images.
I was looking back over our feed and was genuinely blown away by many of the images, some of them shot by Rupert our in-house photographer, some by our guiding team when they’ve been out and about leading groups around the Highlands and Islands and many by the peeps that join our trips or love getting involved in the conversation.
Anyway, enough from me, all you want is to see the photos. Scroll down and don’t forget you can like or retweet any of these pics right here on the page and if you want to follow us on Twitter then just click the button below.
