Setting off up into thick mist incredibly early this morning certainly paid rewards.... they do say the early bird catches the worm.
There are a couple of clues in the pics - so can anyone guess which hill I was on?

+Walkhighlands' Helen with the Google Trekker at the summit of Cairn Gorm today - the highest the Trekker has ever been in the UK.
We're recording footage of some of Scotland's most beautiful places in partnership with Google - eventually you'll be able to explore them on Street View as well as on Walkhighlands itself.

There are very few things that can stop me eating a cheese sandwich, but today I froze in mid bite as this beautiful otter took a look at us, and then sauntered boldly past just 3 or 4 metres away.
