Phew I need a breather after ascending 3,764mm to the mighty Balconie Point trig.

The ransom note school of road signage.

It takes a lot of data to photograph on the trail for five weeks with each frame at 60.5MB. I’m about half way through.

Patriotic.

Had to flatten the undergrowth to find a spot for the tent. Only problem is that it’s not remotely flat!

No place for pedestrians.
I’ve just walked across Cromarty Bridge to the Black Isle for the third time. The first crossing was aged ten walking from John o’ Groats to Glasgow with my mum, the next was aged 21 walking from Land’s End to John o’ Groats solo. Feels like a happy place just as I remember it.

    Many low lying trig beacons. I was walking from Glasgow to Milgavie earlier in the month and went up a little 66m hill which has one.My only other 2022 trig is Pontop Pike,Co Durham at a lofty 312m.We had one near here at Seal Sands which must have been at sea level but the beacon has gone although OS maps show it there’s some rubble around which might have been it.I don’t think that the OS use them anymore and some have been destroyed by lightning and not replaced but the one atop Glastonbury Tor was removed because it was felt to be out of place with it’s surroundings and a direction plaque pointing out local hills,etc has replaced it.
