Up and Down

More madness. 

This morning I jumped in the car at 08:30 and drove north to Pitlochry to climb Ben y Vrackie (Beinn a' Bhreacaidh). 


The weather was great, and just as forecast by the Met Office. Yes, you read it first here. I have climbed it several times before, so I knew what to expect. The last part before the summit is very steep, so my lungs got another good workout.

10km, 787m of ascent and 3.5 hours of fresh air with robust exercise. All good.    

The Blip is of the hill from the spot where I ate my sandwich on the way down. Picnic with a view. The Extra is the view from close to the summit on my way up.
