Well having moaned about going up hills the other day we (DH, me, kids) and granny and Uncle B and his 2 and a half year old, climbed this hill. I don't know its height, not massive, but steep at the end.
There was a real sense of achievement, especially with the kids. DH had to carry the little one down the hill as his brother had to run home else he'd be late for his shopping trip. These relatives live in Zimbabwe and visiting real shops is a pleasure to savour like the best chocolate.
Check out the slope and the wooded hillocks at the base that are pheasant raising areas for shoots which start shortly. I am not a fan of that type of hunting.
This is a dramatic view of Glasgow through the gap at the back of Dumgoyne. Notice the sky in each shot...
People always think the Brits are obsessed with the weather, but it changes so rapidly, you can get every season within a couple of hours.
This is Loch Lomond across the moor. The heather was just amazingly purple. I'll have to find the pictures later...
So, climbed any hills lately?
