Back home

This is your mountain. It’s around 2,500ft high, and the walk in is 5 miles either way, so it’s not something to be undertaken lightly, on a whim. I left the lodge at 7am and was back by 4 – exhausted and very stiff.

This is the decidely OTT dry-stone wall on the bealach (the ‘pass’ in the middle) of Suilven. The summit ridge continues above.

This is the view from the bealach.


This is for Rachel:

I was actually 2½, but otherwise you were right.

    Wasn’t there a poem here yesterday? I liked the 4 year old Colin climbing stair-mountains…where has he toddled off to? I think we need a photo of 4 year old Colin now too! (In kilt if possible).

  2. Colin Will says:

    Ah yes, Rachel, there was a poem, but I never leave poems up here for long, so I can revise them and submit to mags as ‘not previously published’. I’ll be interested in your comments on the new poems. Somewhere in the box of photos my mother gave me, there <>is<> a photo of four-year old Colin in a kilt – you clearly have second sight.

    What a gorgeous picture – and the others too!

    Wow…when did you put the kilt picture up? It is fantastic – look at that smile!And the kilt pin looks so big! Apologies if there is a proper Scots word for kilt pin that I have overlooked…
