Wow what a view, how did you get up there old man ;-) joking aside it's lovely and I love the clouds :-)

Oi!! less of the "old" young Denise;-))) I'm not joking,it was hard going,our 8yr old grandaughter left us standing.Well worth the hike though.The RSPB were down below with scopes watching a Peregrine Falcons nest,we had a great view of the male perched on the crags..magnificent!! Nearly forgot..thanks,i'm glad you like the picture;-)

its more to fit in a beautiful wedding dress :-) did you have a nice walk? how long did it take?

Neil Grimwood on May 9, 2011

Wedding dress Denise???? It was a nice walk,maybe 3/4 hrs including stops,can't remember exactly.We didn't go back down the steps though,we cut across the top and came back via the road near where i took the other pics from.

Well done climbing those four hundred and twenty steps!! It looks to be well worth the effort!! It's a Bobby Dazzler! :D Liked and starred to keep it!

Happy and restful wishes! :)GG

Well well, a Bobby Dazzler for me,now that i do like,thankyou kind lady;-) and for the *!! I didn't mention how many times we had to stop on those steps though. We took the easier way down,a lot longer but that didn't matter.

I'm happy and resting,take care...Neil.;-)
