I just Googled the Glen Lyon horseshoe and it looks like a lovely walk - hope the weather is kind. Are you a Munro bagger, @turtlegirl?

Thanks for good weather wishes @Barbarita!
No, not really bagging anything .... it's more about being outside with friends, enjoying moving in a gorgeous landscape ... and these biggish hills just happen to be there :smile:

12/06/15. Motts Road - Batch Valley. This morning was my earliest yet and I was climbing up Rectory Wood when the church clock struck 7. Over the shoulder down into Cardingmill Valley, then up the track onto the hill, veering right before the highest point and doing a long descent towards Jinlye cottage. Alas during this time light cloud formed and thickened, so,by the time of the steeper descent into Batch Valley there was no brilliant sunlight. I regretted not having brought the camera with me on Sunday, but clicked away regardless, such a beautiful spot. Returned to Church Stretton by field and woodlands paths above the Ludlow road. 7 miles accomplished by 9.15. Then a few hours of sight-seeing in Ludlow with OH.

Since returning home I have done a long run, a road walk and a bike ride, but it has been too damp, windy and gloomy to head up onto the Pennines. Call this summer?

Hi @CandiceMarie. A Munro is a mountain in Scotland that is at least 3000'
high, named after Sir Hugo Munro who surveyed them back in Victorian Times. There are currently deemed to be 282 of them. As well as climbing them you can have nerdy discussions about whether a particular top is a separate mountain or just a bump on the side of another mountain. Munro baggers are people who have climbed, or aspire to climb, all of them.

Some are just very big hills miles from anywhere but some require actual climbing skills and are far too scary for me e.g. the Black Cuillin on Skye. There are 4 mountains higher than 3000' in England, and 15 in Wales.
