After really getting the mountain climbing bug over the last year or so. About time, I added a new sub section to my photo gallery! Which will display some of my favourite photos, of some of the UK named summits, I’ve done! Sure, this list will grow fast!

Can you check out the photos so far @ www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/uk-named-summits/.

Here is a list of some of my places in Scotland for St Andrew’s Day 2016!

First one the list has to be Killearn, since its the village I grow up in! I was so lucky to live in amazing place.

Today I had great fun walking up Ben Lomond, which has an elevation of 974 metres (3,196 ft). This is the second time, I climbed it, the first time was back in August 2002. Back then it sunny day, so could see more miles from the top! This time, I was above the clouds. Which made it feel like, I was on a plane looking out one of the windows.

Here are some photos from an amazing day! And big thanks to my friend Neil for doing the walk with me!

Vlog about cycling from Killearn to Rowardennan on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. The route takes in a section of the National Cycle Network route 7, then follows the B837 to Balmaha, then takes the same road all way to end at Rowardennan.
