Climber carried piano but not tune

`It was a discovery that flabbergasted conservationists cleaning Britain’s highest mountain last weekend. There, beneath a pile of stones on the plateau that caps Ben Nevis, was a piano.

Speculation began as to how it had arrived on such a blustery clime: perhaps it was a prank by a team of students and a helicopter pilot, perhaps a tornado had dropped it there?

“It must be mine,” said Kenneth Campbell, 64.’
