Beinn na Lap ✅

I can now tick off Beinn na Lap. Making it, my fourth Munro. So only got, another 278 left to go…

Really, can’t belive, how lucky, we were with the weather! Could not, have picked a better day for it! Was so hot, Nick and myself got sunburnt. Neil was OK, since he put suntan lotion on.

Oh and yes, I did film a vlog during the walk… Will try to edit it and get it on-line in the next number of days…

You can check out the map, showing all the ones, I’ve done over at www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewmap&u=50976

WOW we did Ben Nevis!!

Job done, we both climbed Ben Nevis, which is the which is the highest mountain in the British Isles!! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level!!! We could not have had a better day for it!! Could see for miles and miles at the top!

I would say that doing Ben Nevis, is right up there with doing the End to End cycle!

Nick and myself climbed Ben Vorlich (Loch Lomond)

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…
