Take on a Walking Challenge

Where am I?

After I retired from rugby, I was challenged to bag 5 Munros. I wasn’t a walker, but within a few weeks I was on top of Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) in the sunshine and a blowing hoolie and I was hooked. Ben Nevis came quickly afterwards and I had no idea that not long afterwards I would end up on Lochnagar (a Munro near Ballater) in a whiteout.

Looking towards the Lairig Ghru from Glen Dee.

Exciting and scary at the same time, the challenges of the outdoors are never ending and I think that’s one of the attractions of the great outdoors. Hill after mountain after glen after river, all ripe for exploration. Some big, some small. I want to share my adventures in these beautiful and sometimes wild places.
