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.


I'm doing Beinn Mhanach on Thurs before heading up. No plans yet for the weekend


On the way up Martin and I are doing the 2 on the east side of Dalwinnie at layby 87 :wink: Should be at the Hostel by 5 all being well.

I also want to do Ben Tee so may miss one of the Munros out as I have already done these. On Saturday I may miss Gairich out and do 2 Corbetts at Loch Arkaig Geal Charn and its pal as I think Martin and Parminder may have enough accomplices to keep them safe.
