Friends were with me as we climbed Meall a’Bhuachaille early, to avoid the worst of Storm Freya that was threatening. James, ten years old, carried the rucksack with Stuart’s ashes, almost the whole time up to the 800m summit.
There was encouragement, understanding, support, hugs, tears and love .
Benefit? I was surrounded by loving kindness.
I can t say the day was glorious but it was a success and exactly right for Stuart.
