Slippery Sublime Slioch - A Walkhighlands Bagging Frenzy!!

Route: Slioch, near Kinlochewe

Munros: Slioch

Date walked: 10/04/2016

Time taken: 8.3 hours

Distance: 19km

Ascent: 1200m

Friday evening a plan was hatched to take in Slioch. This hill was on many a radar as part of a push to compleat the Munroes, it was deemed a group effort would enrich the experience, in what was forecast for crap weather! The weather lived up to expectations with rain. sleet, and snow storms...but the sun did eventually shine :D

This would be Fife Flyers 250th Munro, he also has wrote up a wonderful report detailing the day which you can find in the link below. I will merely post my photos as a record of our day. It was a fabulous day, again with free flowing banter and snowball shenanigans.


My photos...





















I had finished this walk with Nigel (Old Danesian) as he had a long journey South ahead of him, we had great converse over many subjects...it really helped with the long walk out. My knee was really hurting now, I wouldn't walk on the Sunday :(

Saturday night at the WH meet was quiz night! 50 people, assigned to 67 groups, fighting for quiz champions. I heard that Fife Flyer was hot favourite...but he finished in second place :shock: . I'm sure grabbing his 250th Munro earlier would help with his devastation :wink: My young group obviously didn't have the experience, or time, to enhance our knowledge and came last :lol:

This was a brilliant weekend of walking with some wonderful people, I made some new friends and hope to walk again with them all soon. Thanks to Rod & Gary for organizing, also Gill & Tomsie for being quiz masters. Looking forward to the summer meet in Assynt...my favourite part of Scotland :D 8)
