Re: Superb hike to Morven, Caithness.

Although MozzyOff is the best thing (in the absence of a howling gale) I've ever tried. I hope you have a great trip - the WHW is fab, bu...

Re: Munro Round

[quote="blavenraven"]Given that he had publicised his attempt beforehand, he drew criticism for being unprepared from some quarters . Had he not trumpeted his ambition in this manner, the abandonment could have been experienced as a simple matter of private regret. Of course, it is now com...

Great views to the south ...
