Are you back here at the end of April then ? have you got your plans in place for areas/hills ? cheers :)


Thanks Rockhopper! And yes, I'll be back indeed, only 53 days to go now :-D Lots of ideas for hills, though weather will probably dictate final decisions. Rocket-Ron's taking me on the 'grand tour' during the week and we're thinking Torridon, Assynt, possible Kintail. Some ideas are Liathach, Suilven, Stac Polly (I know it's not spelled that way but forgot the actual spelling), Forcan Ridge, uhm... need to check my notes at home for the rest! ;-) And end the week with some bothy fun and a walk up Maol Chean dearg and/or hills around there.

I can't wait! I'll be flying in to Edinburgh on April 28 :-D

Ohhh lovely photos!! I am jealous about your camp in the snow! :wink: Managed a camp in minus temperatures, but did not managed snow (yet) So cool about a heated bathroom! Makes a bit change from using a river when it is -4 outside. Apart from that really great effort!! :clap: :clap:

Stunning photos Lenore and a good walk with camping in the snow, just the preparation you need for Scotland :D

Cheers hills and Monty!!

And Mountainlove, I salute you for being hardy enough to use river water at -4 to wash with :wink: :clap: I bet there wasn't all that much washing done :wink:
