Youngsters rewarded for mountain poetry
Bookmark and Share
The best young poets in a competition organised by the John Muir Trust have been rewarded for their skills and efforts at the Fort William Mountain Festival.

Youngsters from 400 primary schools across Lochaber took part in the John Muir Trust’s Wild Poetry Competition - with entries in both English and Gaelic - and one winner turned out to be a boy who loves to head for the hills with his skiing equipment on.

Daniel Parfitt of Inverlochy Primary School said: "I like Nevis Range because you can go skiing and biking there. I really like going downhill fast!"

He won the first prize in the English primary 1-4 category for his poem titled Nevis Range.

As well as enjoying skiing in winter and mountain biking in summer, visitors to the Nevis Range can also enjoy some Munro-bagging by climbing to the 4,006 ft summit of Aonach Mor and continuing along the ridge to its higher neighbour, Aonach Beag.

Despite the Gaelic name implying Aonach Mor is the higher mountain, in fact it is Aonach Beag that is higher at 4,048 ft.
