Adventure in Scotland

Having grown up in Scotland, I’ve still only just scratched the surface of adventures. There are 282 Munros to climb and countless smaller mountains and hills. Not to mention the beautiful scenery and wildlife that can be seen in Scotland. 

Ben More and Stob Binnein

Ben More (big hill) and Stob Binnein (hill of the anvil) are the two massive mountains you see on the left, just before Crianlarich. They are the 16th and 18th highest Munros, and respectable heights at that!

Meall Corranaich & Meall a’Choire Leith

Meall Corranaich (notched hill/ hill of lamenting) and Meall a’Choire Leith (hill of the grey corrie) are another two Munros that can be found in the Lawers Group and the last two that I had to check off.

Meall Greigh, Meall Garbh & An Stuc

Meall Greig (hill of horse studs), Meall Garbh (rough hill) and An Stuc (the peak) are another three Munros that can be found in the Lawers Group, on the Northern side of Loch Tay.

Beinn Ghlas & Ben Lawers

After a few weeks without bagging Munros, I decided I better get the finger out. For my tenth Munro, I thought I’d do the tenth highest; Ben Lawers.

Schiehallion

Probably one of the most famous Munros, Schiehallion ranks 58th out of 282 for height. It was also used in a scientific experiment to ‘weigh the world’ back in the 1774. After years of hearing the name ‘Schiehallion’, I finally bagged it.

The Cobbler (Ben Arthur)

The Cobbler is one of my favourite mountains that I have done so far. It’s both aesthetically pleasing and an enjoyable climb.

Another scorching day in Scotland, another Munro bagged. On Thursday, I took on Meall Nan Tarmachan and the Tarmachan Ridge with Boab, Teej and Chrissy.

Ben Chonzie

During the week, I managed to bag another Munro. This time, it was Ben Chonzie in the Crieff area. What a cracking hike, excellent Munro for beginners!

Ben A’an

After a failed venture into printed clothing and struggling to find motivation to do anything, I finally dragged myself out the house this earlier this week. I decided to gauge my fitness by hiking up Ben A’an.

Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain, not only in Scotland but in the entire United Kingdom and at the weekend, I finally bagged it. It was hands down one of the more difficult Munros that I’ve done.

Ben More

Despite the torrential rain, Davie and I made an attempt to climb Ben More. Definitely not the nicest of days to do it. I’ll not lie and tell you that we reached the summit, we did not. We barely made it a third of the way up.
