I'm new to the site and just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
At the end of January this year I decided to leave everything behind and move to Scotland after living in South-East England for 5.5 years. I am not British but I've always loved Scotland and dreamt about living here someday. The reason is obvious and doesn't require much explanation, with Scotland being one of the most beautiful places in the world in my opinion.
Now that I'm here my main goal is obviously to explore as much as I can and enjoy all these natural wonders. I've already started hill bagging and added 4 munros, 3 corbetts and a few smaller hills not very popular and I really hope I will conquer all of them until the end of my days.

To be honest I have a very lovely view of Stuc a'Chroin from where I live and Ben Vorlich is hidden. Obviously is visible from other angles, especially if I go up the old railway line, which I do almost every day. I've already climbed the most of the hills around me, including Ben Vorlich and Stuc a'Chroin, so I can say I'm quite familiar with the area. Talking of Ben Vorlich, I had a failed attempt to climb it back in February on a bad day with blizzard, but I managed to do it at the end of March on a much better day.

Meall na Fearna gives a grand view across to Ben Vorlich - especially in winter.
Maybe one for you when all this is over

Meall na Fearna is obviously on my list, as I haven't done it. Being so close to me and let's say accessible is probably one of the next 5 hills to climb for me, as soon as the current situation is over...looking forward to that!
