Or you could try Jessops - they do crack-proof glass picture frames.

Hi MW.............that's some report..really excellent stuff.

Like yourself, I got my caravan out and headed up Glencoe last weekend, with the plan of doing the Buachaille for the White Hackle Challenge and again like yourself was beaten by the weather....I thought the caravan was going to blow over on Friday night and rain hardly halted all weekend. I'm hoping to get up and to do challenge this weekend before the Battalion gets back on 16th....today is my step son's last patrol in Afghanistan and all being well he will be airlifted out to Bastion tomorrow.

Again great report/s and photo's.

Regards.....................B

Thanks Bruadair, shame the weather was so naff for you too. Like you, I am going to complete the challenge this weekend so I'll dedicate one of the hills to them.

Best of luck this weekend. I hope your step son returns safely to you :) :) :)
