Happy #InternationalMountainDay 2017 everyone!! I’ve done very well this year… I’ve climbed Ben Nevis (1,345 metres) and Snowdon (1,085 metres), so in other words the highest mountains in both Scotland and Wales!
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/.
Look back to September 2015, when Neil and myself climbed Ben Lomond!
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.
Next of course needs to be Glasgow!!
Next up is Ben Lomond! Been very lucky so climbed this Munros twice!
The Forth Bridge, no need to say why!
Glenfinnan Viaduct also seen in Harry Potter! 🙂
Also can’t have a list of best places in Scotland with out the Skye Bridge!!
Filmed during my walk to the top of Ben Lomond, which is situated on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. Sorry about the wind at the top!
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!
And here are some photos from when I did it back in August 2002!
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.
