Mountain clean-up planned

With the snows on the Scottish mountains having finally abated enough to no longer permit skiing, wintersports enthusiasts have been asked to take to the slopes once more to help clean up the environment.

The Big Spring Clean will take place on June 20th, run by the Ski Club of Great Britain, with the idea being to clean up litter and other debris strewn around the Nevis Range and Cairn Gorm resorts, something that could be great news for those who go walking up there.

Last year saw 50 bags of rubbish collected from the mountainsides by the 150 volunteers, including a chocolate wrapper dating back to 1990 displaying the word Marathon, the old name for Snickers.

The clean-up coincides with the lightest time of the year when Scotland's nights are very short, which may be ideal for those planning to fill their backpacks with supplies for very long days on the fells.

A Munro-bagger heading to Cairn Gorm could bag that mountain and add Ben Macdui - the second highest peak in Britain - as well as Derry Cairngorm and Ben Meadhoin in one grand summer trek.
