“Glen­coe in Scot­land was my first real ad­ven­ture af­ter I left school. I’d never been any­thing like that dis­tance on my own be­fore. When I ar­rived it was too late in the day to go any­where. But I thought I’d go for a quick hike. When I started my jour­ney I was an in­se­cure teenager. But the climb changed me. I passed hikers and climbers on the way. More than one eye­brow was raised. I reached the ridge in the dark, and stood there feel­ing eu­phoric and a bit brave. I made it down un­scathed and spent a freez­ing night in the car, but I didn’t care. I was elated.”
