Meall Ghaordaidh

Meall Ghaordaidh
Munro 45. Why? 1039m and i've been asking myself that for over half the trek. It proves nothing to me, it only burns off the rubbish i've been eating, so why bother going out. Oh, i can see more of remote and beautiful Scotland. So what? I could do that in front of the telly or via the Web. What have i achieved that taking up jogging wouldn't do? And it'd be cheaper too. No arguments over tents, tarps, fuel, boots, shoes, magazines, forums or the like. Ah well, best get off this lump of rock and find a pitch for the night. I should have brought some Milton to read, that'd cheer me up.

So you've gone for it. Good for you. A great wild, rugged area. I am sure that you will enjoy yourself; and also get very tired! Watch out for the crags. :o)

Aye, Simon, looks a great area, and I'll need to get back there as I've now got the circular route worked out for the 5 Munros at the head of the valley.
