March 2013

Definitely not my best image but one of what is without doubt my favourite hill. Not the hardest climb in the world at 3 kilometres or so from the road end and an ascent of just under 500 metres to the 748 metre summit point, but a hill I've climbed dozens of times, in all weathers and in every season of the year; one I never tire of climbing and one which gives unparalleled views of the surrounding and distant countryside. This image looks north west over Cardon Hill and the Biggar Gap towards the distant Pentland Hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh, some 40 miles away, and, if one looks very closely, the distinctive shapes of North Berwick Law and the Bass Rock can also be seen........And, I'll let you into a little secret - this is my "holy" mountain and every time I touch the trig point, I give a little prayer for all those I hold dear.
Culter Fell, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.
