8 year ago, was the day before setting off on a totally amazing adventure… The adventure of course being the End to End cycle!!
Here are some more photos from the truly amazing walk up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles, located in Scotland. Standing at 1,345 metres.

Nick and myself only went and walked up Ben Nevis which is the highest mountain in the British Isles! Standing at 1,345 metres above sea level!!
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!
And just to show that we really did it! The route we took can be seen @ www.strava.com/activities/1088565730.

Got to say, I love cycling in Scotland! Just don’t get views like this in other parts of the UK!
That truly was a totally amazing cycle! Reminds me, why I love cycling so much! Just a great way to see amazing scenery, much better than being in a metal box!
Of course for scenery, you can’t get much better than Scotland!!! Also can tell just how much fun, I was having! Since I ended up doing the longest cycle of 2017 so far! Ended up doing 63.5 miles!
Was also good fun doing route, that I’ve not done since August 2009, when I did the End to End cycle!
You can check out the full route and stats from the cycle @ www.strava.com/activities/971062599.
I will now leave you with some photos from the cycle!!!

Had a great day in Edinburgh with my older bother Douglas. We also went to Edinburgh Castle! No idea, when I last went!
Just so glad, I am a Historic Scotland member, don’t think, I would want to pay £17! Also still think that Stirling Castle, is way better!!!
