I've been a bit quiet online lately, as we're touring Scotland (yes, again). As we prefer the more remote places, internet access tends to be limited.
A few days ago we climbed up a mountain – something I've wanted to do for a long time. It was a fabulous, though exhausting, day.
We choose Ben Wyvis. That's it – right behind that rainbow – the evening before our climb.
Thankfully visibility was better the next morning.
Proper mountaineers might not think much of our efforts, but reaching the top (it's 1046 metres) was plenty challenging enough for me.
I look like I've climbed a mountain, don't I?
While I've been off travelling, friends have kept me supplied with information.
Thanks to Alyson for telling me about this free to enter writing competition. And to Beatrice for the details of this publication opportunity.
And of course to Gary for getting me up there.
