It was getting dark as I came into that outpost of the world – Mallaig. Here is a harbour, and in the harbour a queer, stormy-looking fleet of small ships with high fo’c’sles. In Scotland Again, HV Morton.

Ben Nevis from Loch Lochy

In all thy moods I love thee, In sunshine and in storm; Lochaber of the towering bens, Outlined in rugged form.
