Date is my last visit when I made about my fifth ascent of Curved Ridge on Buchaille Etive Mor - one of the best scrambles in the UK. Over the years since 1978 I have climbed all the major peaks on both sides of the glen, some a few times - and making ascents both summer and winter.
Having climbed some tops on both sides of Glencoe I'm getting a little more familiar with the area. It is impressive throughout the year whether in snow, rain, hail, sleet, or very occasionally sunshine. I used to think that Llanberis was the most beautiful valley in the UK but although I still think it is great, it has to take 2nd place to Glencoe.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
