I'm planning an ascent of Ben Challum by the standard route from Kirkton Farm on Monday.

Usually happy to hike solo but if anybody fancies coming along then let me know and we'll team up :D

I would really like to join you but I have the remnants of a cold (that I'm sure came the next morning after I jinxed myself that I hadn't had a cold in more than a year haha). Could you maybe PM your number or keep an eye on this space if I decide to come? :D

Also, 2ManyYorkies is right, this is one of the boggiest Munros I've done, I remember jumping more than walking! :lol:

See how you feel. I’ll be parked up boots on and ready to go at 8am at the start point. Grey VW golf. If you make it then great, if not then it’s no sweat.

No worries. I think I’ll now have a stroll up Mayar & Driesh instead.

How was Mayar and Driesh? I woke up and felt recovered, so ended bagging Meall nan Tarmachan above Killin, what a day for it! It was way past 8 though so couldn't give you a shout anymore.
