Missing the hills ! It could be a lot worse never forget that.

On the way off An Teallach after a great day.

Many of us are missing the mountains and wild places and I wonder if should continue posting old photos on the blog? I will as it brings back so many great memories of past days. As I am getting older I hope to have many more days on the mountains before my battered body gives up, time now is critical but there are a lot more important things going on.

The Cairngorms at there best!

My Granddaughter had her birthday yesterday she is 7 with her sister they are coping with a lot just now yet showing so much love and coping so well. I feel for them and all those struggling in these difficult times. Many have lost their loved ones lost jobs are worried and lonely so missing the hills is in the big picture not much of a hardship.

Like many of my pals we are all missing the hills but in the scale of things it is a small forfeit when others have lost so much but we still need to do our bit. I will get back into a routine again yet this time I feel its a lot harder. Please continue to stay in contact with those you love, who are lonely and struggling. Do not forget the Foodbanks and those less fortunate than us.

Life is tough just now for everyone but it will get better.

    Well said Heavy. We will get through this but only if we can all pull together. I’ve had similar concerns about posting stuff about great days on the hills but I’ve been reassured that we need the hope and maybe even some inspiration for the future as many of us feel the dark weight of this pandemic dragging us down.
