Nice report Frogwell and excellent pics. Personally I prefer the slow approach to hillwalking - at my age I've no choice really. I suppose maturity has taught me to take my time to savour the challenge, the ambience and sheer beauty of our Scottish hills. That's my view, others have different views - and none of us are wrong - that's part of the beauty of it all. By the way I did Ben More (the Beast) the other day - report to follow soon. Safe walking y'all.

Thanks for the comments Oldman :)

Truth be told you and I actually share the same approach to hillwalking, which is why I was so surprised when I completed Ben More so quickly. I normally stop often to look around and take copious quantities of photos - that way at least I have a fighting chance of getting some semi decent ones.

Plus of course if I hurry on the hills it just means I get back to the misery of my daily grind that bit quicker. That's as good an excuse to walk slowly as any I can think of anyway.

I look forward to your Ben More report - I was reading one of your other reports this morning; great pics and I liked the video of your daughter playing the penny whistle. I'd actually considered taking a penny whistle on my overnighters to give myself something to do of a winter evening in the tent. I figure if I'm going to try and learn something like that it's best done as far from civilisation as possible :)
