BEN NEVIS - HIGHEST RUBBISH DUMP IN THE UK?
Back up the hills again today after a week of low level walking. Ben Nevis of course! Today I was with Alison, Norman and James in what was probably the worst weather on The Ben this year. Rain most of the day, breezy and low cloud to 700m in the morning. Onnly ggod points was the absence of the midge. Still busy despite the horrible weather and good to see most folk were well kitted out for the rain. The Red Burn was looking spectacular with all this rain recently. Shocking to see the litter on the summit area (see last picture), what filthy folk would leave beer and champagne bottles? I also brought down three separate charity events t-shirts which were adourning the trig point. I picked up so much litter in the space of a few metres around the summit that I had no room left in my rucksac, disgusting.
