Beinn Resipol

An fine day on Beinn Resipol with Iain, Dave, Paul and Dawn, from the excellent Resipol campsite where we enjoyed morning coffee before our 15 km stroll with 900 metres ascent.

Cool and a bit showery on the top. Iain and I were down first after traversing to Beinn an Albannaich via an intermediary 'summit', whilst the others retraced their steps.

Paused on the ascent to admire common spotted orchids, bog asphodel, bog myrtle, eyebright, tormentil, ling, bell heather, wild thyme and several more flowers. An eagle floated past during our traverse; cows munched on the deep grass; not a deer in sight.

Drinks outside Borrodale House, which we have rented for the week, in the sunshine before dinner. With the assistance of an international team I managed to produce a meal for 15, which was followed by an infinite XXL Club slideshow.
Goat's cheese and beetroot salad
Steak and Guinness Pie (Happy Days with the Naked Chef)
Fennel and Lentil au Gratin
Chocolate Mousse (aka Whisky Cake)

Perhaps I'll have more time to relax tomorrow.

Next Day
