Re: Walker Rescued from Cairngorm Car Park

It's been a hard slog reading to the end of this thread. The guy's obviously been caught out in severe conditions which arguably he shouldn't have gone out in but I'm glad to be reading this "wind and pish" rather than reading about a tragic fatality so early in the year. Hi all....I've b...
