I like the pics, you've had a nice day for it. When I climbed Binnein Mor about 20 years ago, on the ridge near the summit, there was a small stone among all the others, with a message on it......something like "in memory of Dad, love Doreen" - just wondered if it was still there.

That's a fair bit of ascent you covered there . Looks like a cracking day anyway and very satisfying, I'm sure .

It was a long day, but the views and changing terrain kept me going. It was also a pleasant mix of sun cream and snow! As for memorials, I didnt notice any on Binnein Mor.
