Yes, it was tremendous. I was lucky enough to see Led Zep twice (1971 & 1973) but couldn't get a ticket for the reunion. I think the show was far better than you would expect after such a long time -...

tbh, it's not as scary as it looks - as long as the weather and visibility is ok, it's nothing more than a bit of a scramble in parts - you possibly need a bit of a head for heights, as it can be a...

They should bring in a similar system here - the only difference being that I should have control of the official list !

I've been up both - the main path up Ben Nevis, whilst long and a bit of a slog, is more like a motorway. You can't possibly go wrong. We went up via the Carn Mor Deargh arete, which is a much more...
