The wooden casing and iron frame of a piano were found on Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, by a group of conservationists tidying the area. It had been buried under a pile of stones near the summit.
“Our guys couldn’t believe their eyes,” trust director Nigel Hawkins said. “At first they thought it was just the wooden casing, but then they saw the whole cast iron frame complete with strings. “The only thing that was missing was the keyboard, and that’s another mystery.”
The piano may have been there for nearly twenty years, possibly pushed up the mountain as part of a charity event.
It’s certainly not playable.
