The Peak of Piano Playing ...

Ben Nevis piano mystery solved
(Filed: 18/05/2006)

The mystery surrounding the discovery of a piano near the top of Britain's highest mountain appears to have been solved.
Volunteers clearing stones from the 4,418ft peak stumbled across the musical instrument on Ben Nevis at the weekend.
But it now appears that the instrument is actually an organ, and that it had been up the mountain for more than 35 years.
Kenny Campbell, a woodcutter from Bonar Bridge in the Highlands, has come forward to say that he carried it up the summit to raise money for a cancer charity in 1971.
Mr Campbell, 64, has also taken a beer barrel, a plough and a gas cylinder up Ben Nevis.
