Sherri and Barbara had set themselves the target of climbing Schiehallion on Wednesday as part of their My Peak Challenge. Schiehallion is a Munro (mountain over 3000ft in the Scottish Highlands) in the Perthshire Highlands, and is a popular objective. Although we didn't quite make the summit in very difficult conditions, they should both be really proud of themselves. If the weather had been kinder they would have cruised it without a problem. Well done both, and thanks for a fun day out. The short video clip shows what the ladies were up against, as they hid inside a bothy bag whilst taking a breather. Well done both of you, really impressed with all you have achieved.

Briefly blue

After what has seemed like a very wet August in the Scottish Highlands, the first few days of September brought a warm, dry interlude. Keen to make the most of this I teamed up with Henry for a few days of rock climbing. The highlight was a warm bluebird day on the great little mountain of Stac Pollaidh in the NW Highlands. More please!

Stunning view from the summit of Stac Pollaidh

A belay with a view!
