So I turn 30 in April and thought after a few years of living in England coming back home (dumbarton) it's time to conquer the hills and mountains in this beautiful country that is home.

The best part is I picked this hill todo first, hard work for a novice but hopefully this time next year I will be more conditioned to it.

To cut a long story short walking up this hill made all the problems of the world go away and find my self.

Theres a few great wee hills in The trossachs to get you started, Ben A'an being one with great views and not too big.
You keep out there and before you know it you'll be going past Balmaha and onto Rowardennan to climb Ben Lomond.
All the best.

Thanks for the reply,
I went up Ben A'an on Tuesday and loved it was a great walk with some view.

I used to do a lot if hill walking I have been up most if the famous Ben's but I am not counting them and starting again.
