Today’s picture is the road to Ben Nevis, taken by Morag Ferguson. Shows off the beauty of the mountain and the glorious sunny weather we have been having of late 😎
Random fact: John Keats – arguably the gold-standard poet of the early 19th century Romantic movement – climbed Ben Nevis in 1818. He must have enjoyed his stroll, because he wrote a sonnet about his experience when he reached the peak. ‘Read me a lesson, Muse, and speak it loud,’ he wrote, ‘upon the top of Nevis, blind in mist.’ A famously delicate little flower, Keats was dead within three years, meeting his maker courtesy of tuberculosis in 1821. If he can walk up Ben Nevis, anyone can.
