Well who would be a bit stiff after a day out with Pam. Yes this, almost a mountain, is a steep climb, but it is superbly located for great views.

I can't tell you how many times I've climbed Black Combe but its into 3 figures. On a sunny day you can't beat the views stretching from Stranraer to Holy Head. Great sea aspects and many of the fells too. It takes a good walker...More
