A Round on Rannoch Moor
What a stunner………………..and the weather was excellent too.
It was up to the White Corries car park to give a gentle stroll down to the start, NE of the Kings House. Our chosen route today was Beinn a’ Chrulaiste, round to Meall Bhalach, and on to Meall nan Ruadhag. Clearly a mere stroll for the supremely fit and unrecognisable Dr.Struthers, (retired – now with several occupations). Never JUST a day in the hills with Ian, it’s a veritable EDUCASSHUN(sic. )Whereas i merely assault Ian’s ears with bad jokes – well to be fair he does actually laugh at some of them. For example when the mist did clear from the tops…….We looked down to the head of Blackwater Reservoir and Ian related that there is a cemetery there for the six workers (navies) who perished on the hills after a night out at the Kings House. One day we shall go down to have a look round.
The hills resplendent in their autumnal colours – and what colours they were. Just stunning, radiant. Of course then we were deep in a philosophical discussion. No it was’nt along the lines of a Pythonesque football match……”And Plato, onto Kant, passes to Heidegger and …….Oh, Martin,Martin, Heidegger how could you fall over the ball……it’s all too much for him.” Well back to ruminations for now…….
“The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking”. Martin Heidegger
Tell you what Martin – we’ll get back to you……..that could be tricky.
For clearly we had promises to keep and miles and…….you know the rest – as we passed the Kings House again without entering. Now that’s just negligent, plain and simple. You just can’t have that going on, can you?
