On my trip to Mull, a group of friends and me all decided to climb Ben More, the highest North Westerly Munroe there is. We walked it on a very calm, warm day and there was not a cloud in site.
As you start the climb there is an arrow pointing in to the air that says 'UP' and it means it! The first mile or so up is leg-stretchingly steep. We stopped at the stream beside us,which we were following to the summit, to fill our water bottles. The water was clear and almost turquoise. My friend managed to collect a frog in his water bottle accidentally when filling it up but realised it had caught a lift before we started up the next bit of the hill!
As we climbed, the clear blue skies became cloudless again and we could see over Mull and Iona for MILES! It was truelove spectacular.
It must of took us about three and a half hours to climb all the way to the summit, (but we did stop to eat our peanut butter and banana sandwiches half way up).
When you do finally get to the top, the sights are breathtaking (literally! it was so windy and the air was so dense being so high we could hardly breath!!!)
It took us another two hours ago to descend from the summit and to get back to our little mini bus parked at the very bottom of the hill!
Thats my second Munroe under my belt :) A fantastic day out!
