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/.
Sorry just playing around with some new editing software. Been using Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11.0 for a long time! So about time, I moved to something new! So just paid for CyberLink PowerDirector 15 after reading some great reviews about it! So just wanting to see, what fun things I can do with it!
Well the first tour of our Scotland tour, could not have got off to a better start! Today Nick and myself climbed Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond)! Making it the first ever Munro that Nick has climbed! My second one, the first being Ben Lomond, which I’ve done twice!
We could not have picked a better day for it! The weather was sunny and for most of the climb, nice and warm! Till we got to the very top of Ben Vorlich that is! When it was windy, which made it a bit on the cold side!
Ben Vorlich is 943 metres, making it the 229 highest Munro in Scotland out of 282! So maybe not the tallest! But it was still a great climb! And some great views from the top!
I will now leave you with some photos…
