A couple of days later than Aonach Mor, we were on the other side of Scotland, across its watershed, climbing Schiehallion, 1083m, above Loch Rannoch. We'd started quite early, but not early enough because a whole large coachload of German hillwalkers arrived and claimed the summit and its far reaching view, over to the west, Ben Nevis & Glencoe

So my son and I dived off down onto an alternative little-used route down through the whinberries, among the sheep, pretending to pose as 'Monarchs of the Glen'...

Alan, it has been a delight to follow your latest mountaineering threads and meeting your son. Each and everyone of the pictures is worthy of comments. I have some favourites but I'll keep them for myself. Thank you, Alan

Reminded me a poem by Robert Frost ' The Road not taken'... ah,after all, aren't weacquainted withthe merits ofgoing throughthe narrow gate; )

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments, which make the still-slightly-aching limbs feel much better.

I'm planning my next foray to the hills! Daughter, a newly-Edinburgh-qualified doctor, now lives in Perth on the doorstep of the Highlands, so I expect to be there regularly.
