At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Marilyn's rest day

I have said before that I can tolerate walking in the rain providing I am wearing good gear, and views, even if only intriguing glimpses, are possible.

This morning I drove to SX 158 800 the starting point for Brown Willy (please, no jokes - I've thought of too many unpublishable ones as a title for this post). Visibility was down to about a hundred yards and it was sheeting with rain. I hung around for nearly an hour sat in the car and then returned to the caravan.

Whilst I am motivated to climb as many Marilyn's as I can, I know I will never do all 2016, so there is not the pressure experienced with the Munros or the Corbetts when you know completion is attainable. I am pretty sure that if Brown Willy had been one of the last, say twenty Munros, I would have been up there walking on compass bearings and feeling heroic afterwards.

I am having difficulty posting with the iPad. I can' get Blogpress to work with photos. This is coming by email.
