In April a friend and I spent a week staying at Ratagan Youth Hostel on Loch Duich in the Scottish Highlands. Despite some very wet and windy days we enjoyed some great walks and climbed several “Munros” (mountains over 3000ft). One day the sun did shine and we enjoyed spectacular clear views across snowy slopes. We thought we’d done pretty well that day climbing two Munros until we met a 70 year old hitch hiker returning to his car having traversed the 15 mile long South Glen Shiel ridge with 7 Munros! O to be old and fit! Click here for more picture.
