There’s a pretty nice view from the top…
Last semester I did a post about the atmospheric view from The Cannons (including authentic beheading stone!) but I’ve now had the chance to explore the rest of the hill. While a lot of it reminded me of Teletubbyland with its rolling hills and sporadic patches of daffodils, the view from the top remains its very best feature.
I snapped these pictures when I decided my camera deserved to come on a walk with me for once. I managed to unintentionally time my mini-hike with dusk, and for once the sun was cooperating… well, as much as it can in Scotland – I was battling sporadic rain and chilling winds as well. The ever-present clouds are just something you get used to.
I’ve also been battling a heap of work for university while preparing myself for Mount Kilimanjaro, so I apologise for the lack of regular posts! My kit is coming together, piece by piece, largely due to clearance sales which are a godsend for my student budget. At this rate, it’s entirely possible that I’ll make it up to Uhuru Peak without any debt!
