Beinn a’ Ghlo - March 2004
Another vintage 35mm photo of a favourite hill, one I climb on the same weekend every year.
Beinn a’ Ghlo, near Blair Atholl, was actually the first big hill I climbed after moving to Scotland in 2003. The wide open space, large herds of deer and rugged beauty of it all was completely unlike what I’d become accustomed to in Wales. It felt like I’d finally found what I was looking for…….unlike Bono.
I now visit Beinn a’ Ghlo every year on or around the same weekend in March. I call it my ‘anniversary walk’, a way of reminding myself way I moved here in the first place; paying my respects to this landscape, not taking it for granted and celebrating moving to Scotland.
Ten visits over ten years so far. A beautiful, beautiful hill.
