Maybe try that favourite wee hill at sunset or sunrise as another means of seeing it in a different way?
I did a lot of walking in the 80s and 90s then went off the boil a bit in the 2000s. I think that promise to myself of a monthly walk and also keeping a blog here has helped a bit. Into my fifties now I know obviously that my final hill walk will arrive one day so I feel an extra impetus to grab opportunities as they arise.
Yeah it's a good idea. I took someone else up a wee nearby hill last year; he hadn't been before, so it was a new perspective for me to be 'the guide'. I've been browsing photos from the last few years of various walks and hills I've done. I actually go out by myself a lot. I've been to Arran, Mull, the north west, etc., just on my own steam. I guess the momentum slowed a bit!
