+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.

I could tell you that the ascent of Stob Coire Creagach is Steep, with a capital 'S'.
But instead I'll just share this photo taken at the summit looking back down to the car park - you can see the car to the left. Captured at 8.45am this morning - well worth getting up for the best of the light.
