I've Been on the Mountain.


What a way to spend New Year/ Hogmanay. First, a hectic snowy climb up Beinn Tulaichean, just past Rob Roy's burial site (worth a visit), to stand in awe above the mist at over 3000 feet which flooded the valleys below. As you looked around, every peak you could see poking from the mist was a Munro!! Unbelievable. I've been on the mountain? Damn right. Never seen anything so stunning. Cooked German sausage with mustard, and watched God peel the top off the world.

Then back to the Ardlui Hotel at the north end of Loch Lomond for a five course meal of steak, salmon and venison with great friends and the bouncing kids. Lots of Guinness and whiskey, kilts, Hogmanay hugs and Scottish dancing. Magic.
