Arran again
Met Dooterbang on the boat
He`s a good guy

We got on the bus
He was going to North Glen Sannox
I got off at Glen Sannox

Warm March day
Went to the beach
It was nice

Big raptors circling in the sky
Eagles . Buzzards most likely
Watched them till they flew

Met a bunch of Spanish kids
Kids . They were in their twenties
One had heels on, they wouldn`t go far

Beautiful Glen Sannox
Grey granite walls
Cir Mhor at it`s head

A couple in the long grass
They had no backpacks
They were holding hands

A couple from Yorkshire
And their dog
They weren`t holding hands

Stopped by the river
Lay for a while
Listened to the water

Climbed up the saddle
Good wee scramble
Not for big old dogs

Views from the saddle
Decision to be made
The Mountain or the Glen

The Mountain it was
I couldn`t resist
Up i go

Sun beating down
Dry grippy stone
Reach for the sky

Over pinnacles
Around Pinnacles
Up to the top

Goatfell again
My favourite hill
I`ll climb it again
