Ben Nevis

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.
