Morven - always worth returning to

Just pausing for breath - it's been a while since we last did a big hill walk
On the look out for mountain hare and ptarmigan
Can you see all the snow on Lochnagar in the background?
Gail! Did you sign the Morven summit book in the wooden box?
Let me go - I think I just saw a hare!
Oh alright, I'll sit still, if there's a treat in it...
Let's get moving again Gail -it's windy up here on the plateau
So much empty space to explore...
What? A picture without me! Is that allowed?
Heading back down to the car - still going strong after eight miles


  1. oh what a feeling to write your names in such a summit book... I would like to read all the names of the people and pups who visited that place ;O)

  2. Wow, eight miles - that's a lot of kilometres here ! That's some walk Bertie, and in such beautiful scenery, you lucky boy.

  3. hari OM
    The hunkering down behind the cairn out of the 'breeze' is duly noted! It has been windy enough down here at sea level, can't quite think of the brrrrrrrrr up there! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Beautiful scenery Bertie! Thank you for sharing the photos., because there is no way we are going to get the muzzer to do 8 miles without a stop or two for tea or shopping.


  5. It is stunning and has Lady excited about her visit to the Bonnie land in August.

  6. Bertie Hailey and Phod took the word right out of mom's mouth...STUNNING that first photo with all the patchwork of earth colors WOW. Now that being said...all that scenery is fine but it is YOUR presence that make it purrfect
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Nice job, Bertie! And walking when it's windy is even harder.

  8. That looks like so much fun, Bertie. And we are all so green with envy that you get to run free of your leash!

  11. The place is stunning. And eight miles: way to go, Sir Bertie!

  12. That's a REALLY big hill. Did you and your peeps get to enjoy it all by yourselves? SWEET. purrs

    1. The only other humans we saw all day were the couple who suddenly materialised at the summit and offered to take our photo!
