  • Secret Britain

    I've really enjoyed seeing the locations featured in "Secret Britain" over the last few weeks. Now the presenters, Adam Henson and Ellie Harrison, are requesting viewers to share their secret places for the next series.

    I've got a few ideas, but I sure wish that Ellie would share her secret places with me!

        The trouble with programmes (and indeed books) with titles like "Secret Britain" is that the locations are subsequently no longer secret!

          I particularly enjoyed the stunning scenery (and for once I don't mean Ellie ) of Loch Morar. It revived memories of May 1985 when Morar was my starting point for a two week coast to coast backpack across Scotland. The first day was spent walking the shoreline to camp at the head of the loch - seldom have I encountered such rough terrain on a supposedly low level walk, but it was well worth the effort. It's frightening to think that was 30 years ago!

              I watched the Scottish one. Not so secret for me. My father was the custodian of the CIC hut on Ben Nevis for 17 years. First time I climbed the Ben was from there via The Castle (grade III) in Feb 1974. Also the first time I took part in a rescue after someone slid down Observatory gully.
              Funny thing in the programme, was that he walked up to the hut in what looked like June conditions and the next day he got onto the summit plateau in the middle of the Nevis Hill race (1st Saturday in September). Rip van Winkle?

                On the subject of the delectable Ellie, did anyone catch her version of 'Ring of Fire'? Until then, I thought that no one other than Johnny Cash should sing this classic. She certainly had me mesmerised!

                The beauty of not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise and is not preceded by periods of anxiety

                  Dream on, John!

                  The series runs here also but not one that I have followed.
