Sun, blue skies, blistering heat, dry crunchy ground, rivers reduced to a trickle, a strange lack of midges.  Oh and the heat has to be mentioned a second time.  These are not usually words used to describe the Scottish Highlands.  As I plunged naked into a mountain stream I had to pinch myself to make sure I was not dreaming.
