Ben Vrackie: Celia Ringer 1914 – 2009

On the same sunny spring day on Ben Vrackie as the previous post I found this memorial bench to Celia Ringer and the dedication made me smile.  I expect she often set off on this walk and would say, ‘I’ll be happy to get to my bench’.  If she managed to do this in her 95th year that would have been quite an achievement, as Ben Vrackie is a steep walk and I wish I could have met her as she walked up here.  Thanks to those who cared about her, Celia Ringer’s words will be remembered.

The bench is in a beautiful viewpoint and I sat here a while resting and taking in the scene.  We decided to use the bench as the place to take a family photograph as a gift for my Dad’s 80th birthday and so the four of us (me, my partner, our son and our daughter-in-law) posed and smiled while a friend took the photographs.
