Ben Nevis

Monday, September 14, 2015

Yesterday I came back from Scotland. This was not my first visit to Scotland, I went to Edinburgh last year. The reason for this visit was climbing Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in UK, to raise money for Clapa.

We had hired a coach to get us from Glasgow airport to Fort William, the views during the whole trip were amazing. I never realised it is so beautiful here. 

The climb was more challenging than I thought it would be. It is steep from the very beginning, the weather was really bad, we got completely soaked. I didn't take a picture at the top, the weather was too harsh. The wind was very strong and it seemed to have ice in it, it hurt my face. 

I found going down much easier and if I hadn't to wait for others, I would have done in it much quicker.

When I was climbing down all I wanted was to have a hot shower and get into dry clothes. You really start appreciating the small things.

We already planning next year's climb, what I want to do for this is to do proper training, I am not as fit as I'd like to be. 

I would much appreciate if you support my just giving page

  1. A friend of mine was just in Scotland visiting his parents who had recently moved there - not exactly sure where in Scotland though. All the photos he was posting were stunning and so are these ones. I guess Scotland really is the place to go if you are a lover of beautiful nature an the great outdoors. After seeing his photos and yours, I have put Scotland on my list of places to visit.
