Britmums Daily Photo Challenge: Day 13 – Mountain


Today’s Britmums photo challenge word is, Mountain.

I could have done a photo collage of my children mid-tantrum because they’d made a ‘mountain out of a molehill’ or something like that (I’ve got plenty to choose from!!) but thought I’d settle for this collage of our trip to the Ben Nevis Range in Scotland last Easter.


A gloriously sunny day. Snow, gloves and t-shirts…

It was one of the best days out ever. Gloriously sunny (one of the few sunny days we did get that holiday actually) and just enough snow left that you could still ski or sledge…or make snow angels. Very important.

The trip up in the Mountain Gondola was brilliant and hilarious in equal measure with my eldest declaring that “we are all going to die!!!!!” and having a panic midway up the mountain. He eventually calmed down and began to enjoy himself but it did take a few minutes (and a few sweeties!!!)

If you’re ever off to that neck of the woods (and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s so easy to forget how utterly amazing our country is and look further afield for a holiday) I’d say a visit to the Nevis Range should be on your to-do list. There’s even a kids park up there with, I think, the best views from a swing I’ve ever seen…

How’s that for a playground?!

    What an amazing mountain! That would have been me shrieking “l”m gonna die” that’s for sure. Sounds like you all had a wonderful holiday. I’m afraid I don’t do cold. Anything involving gloves, hats or scarves on holiday is a no-no for me!
