1. Ben Nevis (1) (23/08/2002)

After completing the West Highland Way, we had a day to spend near Fort William. And what better way to spend it than climbing a wee hill. Ian and I began our ascent at about 9am and were the second group of walkers to reach the top that morning. I won't mention the fact that the first group included a boy who can't have been more than about 9 and the third group ran up, checked their watches at the top, muttered '46mins - not bad' and then ran down again. Still, we were fairly pleased with ourselves, having reached the highpoint of the British Isles and perhaps inspired a desire to climb some more. (photo taken in 2006 from the NW)
