These two panels incorporate photographs taken on two separate hill walks in the Western Highlands of Scotland. Meall Copagach, referred to in the left hand panel, is a hill near Loch Etive, and Slioch is at the south-east end of Loch Maree (Ross and Cromarty).

Fulton walked to the top of both hills, and this is emphasised in the way each panel is positioned in relation to the other and by the layout of the text in each. For example, the boulder in the centre of the right hand panel was photographed approximately halfway to the summit of Slioch.
