"Day 4 on the North Coast 500 and there was only one thing on my agenda today ! My personal challenge ! I have lived in Scotland for over 7 years now and have yet to "Bag a Munro", so today was the day come rain or shine. And I decided to start with the most northern Munro of them all "Ben Hope". Have to admit I was feeling a little nervous as I drove towards it !

The Ascent of Ben Hope, a mix of trudging my way through a thick black muddy bog and scrambling up rock paths, loved every minute of it.

Half way up and the mist rolled in, do I turn back or do I do the really stupid thing of carrying on up a mountain I know little about on my own in thick mist and rain ? That's right I did the stupid thing ! two and a half hours up, one and a half hours down, my knees are screaming at me ! but I'm so happy tonight, personal achievements come in all shapes and sizes, and for me this was a big achievement, bagged my 1st Munro, only another 281 to go !!!!!!!!!
