Sacred Hill

Schiehallion (Sacred Hill) by GLADMAN The well maintained track terminates as the summit ridge is attained.... from then on it's up to you. I found this very tiring and difficult on the knees. But there you are....

Well done sir and so glad you got a clear day for it! ("In a season of light you can see forever, at the edge of the world where the cold winds blow" At the Edge of the World)
I huvnae been up the top of there in nearly forty years, I was less than 10 years old when I climbed Schiehallion with my parents on a breathless sunny summer day and I found it hard on my wee knees back then. I remember the wind on the summit was very blowy! ("Of course, the farther North you go the emptier are the roads... and the wind sings through your helmet plume." Puck of Pook's Hill)
I hope it was safe oot and safe in again for you Gladman, we age quicker than these hills and the years don't arrive on their own. ("No blind spots in the leopard's eyes, can only help to jeopardize the lives of lambs, the shepherd cries" Outdoor Miner).
Dunno about quoting George Michael on the fairy hill of the Caledonians but... More power to your boots!
