Up Craig Dunain again, yet again. There is no other hill or mountain I have climbed so frequently, at the moment three times a week. And why not? The hill is a perfect training ground within easy running distance of Inverness.
Craig Dunain – all 288m of it – doesn’t look terribly impressive in this photograph, but it’s a hill with a bit of everything: gentle grassy slopes, steep rocky climbs and sopping wet woodland tracks.
Having now committed myself to the Highland Cross, a 50-mile duathlon between Kintail and Beauly in mid-June, as well as the Ben Nevis Race two-and-a-half months later, Craig Dunain hasn’t seen the last of me.
