Geograph - Every corner of Scotland in photo!

Geograph is an open online project to bring together images from every square km of the UK. Its broad aim is to bring maps alive and give a more human impression of the landscape, urban or wild, to the viewer. It's a pretty useful tool for exploring the country from a distant location in combination with free online OS maps. You could use it to get a feel for a town or just to check out a view of somewhere you might not have an opportunity to get to, such as a remote island or mountain.

The shot above is not from Geograph, its one of mine, taken in February this year. Its the Ardnamurchan peninsula seen from one of the few places you'll see the whole peninsula at one time - from the summit of Blaven on Skye.
