Generations of Glasgow and West Central Scottish tourists, walkers and climbers have been going to the playground of the Arrochar Alps for the last 100 years. Surprisingly, unlike a lot of other areas in Scotland further north The Arrochar Alps have remained much the same as they were then. Apart from the tourist path up the ever popular Cobbler not much has changed and the rest of the hills don't have the usual "seen from space" tracks up them. It is also very easy to have the surrounding 10 or so Munros and Corbetts that make up the Arrochar Alps entirely to yourself, which I always find amazing.

P. J. Harvey is an artist I've long admired over many interesting CDs since Is This Desire? in 1998. Ever evolving, independent, and staying well clear of the latest trends she carves her own musical path. Still the only artist to win the Mercury Music Prize twice this is from her rock and blues period.
