Going for Bronze with Bigfoot Adventures...

Robert Louis Stevenson wrote about Morven in the 1886 novel 'Kidnapped', in which Davy Balfour went over the mountain with Alan Breck. Byron mentions 'climbing it's steep summit O, Morven of snow' in his poem 'When I Roved a Young Highlander'. Morven is also special to myself, and features in my earlier years as an outdoor instructor. At 871 metres, it is classed as a 'Corbett'. A Corbett is "a Scottish hill between 2500 and 2999 feet high with a drop of at least 500 feet (152.4m) on all sides". They are named after the list's original compiler, J.Rooke Corbett. Not only is this a fantastic place to come to on a walking expedition - with views of the Cairngorms, Lochenegar and Mount Keen - but it is also a very physical challenge for the participants of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. 'Bronze' doesn't always mean coming third...
Out of the cloud...
On a clearer day, with Mount Keen in the background...
Final climb...
Reaching the trig-point...
Top of the World...
The descent begins...
Some quicker than others...
The home-straight, with Morven behind them...
Final steps...
Home, sweet home...
