Climbed Ben Nevis four years ago!

WOW! Where has the time gone? Four years ago today, Nick and myself climbed Ben Nevis, which is of course, the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level. Still can’t believe that we both did it!!

Check out the route we took at www.strava.com/activities/1088565730

Here are some photos + vlog, from a truly amazing day!

Went to Roche Abbey with Douglas

Been great getting to use my Historic Scotland Membership this week, after not using it in over 2 years…. Of course, all know the reason. So don’t need to say why! So far this week, I’ve been to Conisbrough Castle, Dover Castle and now Roche Abbey using it! Hoping to use it, at last 1 or 2 more times this week.

I had been around Roche Abbey, before but back in June 2018. So it was great to have a look around it again!
