GCF0 - Scotland's First

Postby Spotty Spotty Pony Girl on Sun Jul 05, 2015 1:05 pm

LWB and I went to Scotland on holiday. One day 3 - June 23 - we headed to grab Scotland's first cache, placed in December 2000. We were feeling pretty cocky because the tallest mountain in Scotland is actually just a wee shorter than WV's highest point. We figured we had this. We are Idiots.

The cache was hidden in a lovely area and was a fairly easy find once I focused. Deciding to continue on and hit the summit of Ben More at 3800+ feet was something freakin' else! The view and the smug sense of self-satisfaction was worth every bit of pain that followed me for the rest of the entire holiday (we arrived home July 3 so it was a long darn time).

Here's my log.

that little dip in the elevation, that's where we had to drop down and across a valley to get the cache and then come back. It was a heck of a climb!

Buffaloes and tigers are one thing, but mustelids are not to be trifled with.
