"Snow ((Hey Oh))" by the Red Hot Chilly Peppers

Snow ((Hey Oh)) - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Another walk ... This week I walked up Ben Rinnes with friends, Esmae, John and Edith

Ben Rinnes is ... well, here is an extract from Wikipedia, "Ben Rinnes (Scottish Gaelic: Beinn Ruaidhneis) at (841m/2,759ft) is a mountain in the region of Moray, Scotland. The mountain is popular with hikers with the sight from the summit that is described as truly amazing. At the summit you can see 8 counties (Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Moray, Nairnshire, Inverness-shire, Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland, and Caithness) and on a clear day even the Moray coast. Another draw for the hiker are the waterfalls from the many rivers that flow down the mountain such as Linn of Ruthie."

As you will see in my photos we could not see much of the surrounding counties as there was a lot of snow about but it was great fun.

"These Boots Are Made for Walking" by Nancy Sanatra

The weather in this part of the UK has been poor over the past few weeks with snow showers and very cold spells of weather. So I have been reluctant to get out and walk. However, in the past two weeks I have walked up Top o'North and Clachnaben with my friends, John & Esmae. At Top o'North the wind was extreme and atop Clachnaben we had high winds and the odd drop of snow. BUT we had a great time.

Thanks for your company guys!
