Amy and Catriona on Dumyat

Dumyat has featured in this blog a few times as my favourite local hill. But yesterday marked a watershed: on my way back down, I met grand-daughter Amy, who (with her mother Helen, friend Catriona and Catriona's parents) had climbed nearly the whole mountain by the normal route!

Aware of their plan, but thinking it fairly ambitious for two 3-year-olds, and above all anxious not to risk disrupting or gate-crashing it, I had taken Bramble up the less-trodden route from the north, wondering whether or not I might meet them. I was truly delighted on my way down to meet this cheery group. They weren't far short of the summit and, more important, were clearly having a splendid day.

Here, courtesy of Jim (Catriona's dad) are some pictures celebrating Amy and Catriona's first day on a big hill:
