Richard Mclellan (+29=1332)

The year got off to a good start with Nordic ski ascents of The Buck and Meikle Balloch Hill, the former with snow sparkling in bright sunshine, the latter with the lights of Keith sparkling in the darkness below. Easter in Sutherland added more new Marilyn ascents, including the excellent Ben Stack in less-than-excellent weather, but the delight of that week has to go to a driftwood fire on the beach at Achiltibuie, watching daylight fade slowly into night to the calls of oyster catchers. A combination of sailing, cycling and 11 Ultras have, unfortunately, reduced time devoted to Marilyns in 2010. This can only mean one thing. - I must try harder in 2011.
