I had some more recent “top of the world” photographs sorted out for the next few days, but the other night we rediscovered a set from 2005 when we were in training for a Very Big Walk Indeed. None of them are labelled (tsk, tsk) but, matching the date-stamp to my diary, on this day in March we climbed both Beinn Bhreac and Ben Reoch in Glen Douglas, which runs between Loch Lomond and Loch Long. That might sound ambitious, but I have also helpfully noted that our total ascent was 2627ft, so there was less climbing involved than on a Munro (Scottish hill over 3000ft). Is this Beinn Bhreac or Ben Reoch? Pressing my detection skills into use again, I conclude from photographs online that I am almost certainly standing on top of Beinn Bhreac.
And for those who get alarmed at the drops in these posts, I assure you that they are almost always far less dangerous than they look. I just like to pose.
