Mayar / Driesh

Mayar / Driesh


Postby craighall » Tue Jun 14, 2011 12:08 pm

Anyone fancy an ascent of the above in the near future ?

I'm quite a Junior Munroist, and lack the self discipline / ability to accomplish too many Munros on my own.

I've had sympathy for Mayar / Driesh for some time, as they have quite unflattering names, and are close to where I live in Edinburgh.

Michael.

Hi Michael,

I'm interested, I have walked up Mayar but my walking partner that day didn't want to go up Driesh too as she had already been up that one. I would like to do them both.

Annwyl Greg, ( I used to live in Ynys Mon )

Thanks very much for getting in touch. if you don't hear anything in the first day or so you think your enquiry becomes lost !

Drop us a line, mjdolan11@hotmail.com, to identify any possible dates in the next few weeks.

I'm not the quickest walker, despite the challenge of going up Meall Corranich ( nr. Ben Lawers ) in Saturday's inclement weather.


Diolch yn fawr,

Michael.

Hi Michael,

Have you got your date yet for Mayar and Dreish? I wouldn't mind tagging along. I could bring my iPhone/ Viewranger combo- you will definitely not get lost!

Prynhawn da - Good afternoon !

Perhaps I could give Cymraeg lessons to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.

Well, you've got to introduce a different angle onto these website posts.

Iechyd da,

Nos da,


MIchael.
