Thanks for the answer, Michelle :D Hopefully weather cooperates! I'm looking out of my window now and it's so lovely outside... Fingers crossed it lasts (or comes back again for the meet weekend)!

We have done Ben Tee a few years back as X-mass walk but saw nothing due to cloud so happy to repeat :D
Cheers

Hi

Is this full yet? Looks like there might be a spare bunk but I can't count! I'd like to stay in the hostel on Friday and Saturday night if there's still space - bit of a last minute decision.

cheers

Hi, if anyone is heading to this meet on Friday afternoon returning on Sunday (after a walk) and passing through Callander can we negotiate sharing a car please?

It looks like i have to work Friday now but could have the Monday off. I assume I just need to speak to the hostel people directly if I want another night?

Potentially I'm working till late so might have to stay at a services and arrive early Saturday.

I'm arriving at the hostel Thursday eve (hopefully!), and keen(ish) to do the Loch Lochy pair on the Friday, despite an average-at-best forecast.
If anyone else around and wants to play that would be great, you'll enjoy the healthy inner satisfaction of knowing there's someone far less fit than you ...

Great stuff George, I’ll look forward to that. Deborah will be parked up at the start and will join us. Book time of 7-9 hours so will need to be a fairly early one I guess.

Friday's forecast is looking a bit Ian Wright Wright Wright so i'll probably just work on Friday and see you all there on Friday evening.

Might have a bash at Gairich on Saturday and perhaps the two Loch Treig munros from Fersit on the way home on Sunday but we'll see how the weather looks nearer the time.

Met Office has snow showers, sunny intervals (yeah right) and brass monkey temperatures - what’s not to like??
