Munro Bagged

Here are a couple more photos of the great Aviemore weekend before everyone gets bored. These are taken at the top of Cairngorm and if you look at the picture above you'll see a patch of blue far away down the hill. That is Loch Morlich which featured in yesterday's post. We were camping on the shores of the loch.
Anyway I have to confess that I wasn't the one up the hill - that was Bob. He's the Munro bagger ( the what?). Google it if you want to know, I can't be bothered explaining tonight. Okay, okay a Munro is a Scottish mountain over 3000 feet and there are hundreds of them. People with nothing better to do make it a sport to climb them all - bagging them.
I'm afraid my wee fat legs are not very good on hills. I can maybe just about get up them with much moaning and whining, but it's ten times worse on the old knees trying to get back down, not to mention the vertigo. Enough said.
It is pretty spectacular up there though - these pics were actually taken last year at the Trade Show weekend. This year it was more overcast, but he climbed it all the same. Bob has a habit of climbing the same small number of Munros over and over again, which means he'll never get round to doing the lot. But he's not competitive - so what.
By the way, talking of spectacular photos, have a look at these . Bonnie Scotland, eh?
Before I go I meant to say yesterday that the new designs (shown on this blog before anywhere else), were a success at the show with healthy orders for them all. Rather satisfying, she said smugly. Goodnight.

  1. Comment from the old bagger - snorting with laughter - You? Just about climb a mountain? You are kidding.Actually he's snoring upstairs at the moment, so I'm commenting on his behalf. It's what he would say anyway!
