Day one of my weeks holiday - always have a wee break in April
Again lucky with the forecast - high pressure for the week - and so it turned out
Pleasant enough round of these two hills just south of Achnasheen

Alas - dropping down from the second hill on steep heather lost my footing and twisted my back :( :(
Stayed the night in Ullapool - but the next morning just had to bail out and go home - just too sore to walk
A real disappointment - Inverpolly was the target for the week - will just have to go back

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

NAE ******* CHANCE - GUTTED :evil:
