Some trips to the hills are hard to forget, often because every aspect of the trip was enjoyable, or, because the whole day out was a total flop. On this occasion, I witnessed a combination of both of these extremes. My pal Gammy has told the story of the many mishaps that occured on the day after April Fools Day, see here, http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10840

But my perspective on this day is best told through the joys of live video . . .

This trip will live long in my memory! Thanks again for the company boys!


Just a few minor corrections to Gammy's route and total ascent from his report - ascent closer to 1083m.

Enjoyed that Stretch, well put together video and very funny.
Us Alan's must must be all the same, I'm also famous for losing stuff like that, every trip I either go without something I should have taken (important thing like a tent!) or come back with stuff lost (gloves on last Aviemore meet) or leave stuff behind on a rock and have to go double back for them by about 5 miles (trousers!) :?
