Today we went up Carn na h-Easgainn which is a ‘Gordon’ hill of about 2020 feet. It’s quite easy walking as you can follow a Land Rover track up the hill to the summit. Saying that, it still took us 2 hours to get to the top and back. There was a good covering of snow and it was so peaceful, just what I was needing after spending the last few weeks (and I’ve got two weeks to go staying at people’s houses) in the parent’s houses. That is in no way a complaint at the wonderful hospitality I have been receiving (been spoilt really), but sometimes you just need your own space and that was what I managed to get today. It was so nice to have my boys to myself. We met no other people on the walk. The joy of being in the Highlands!
