A day out this was my brothers first experience off the hills so headed of for vrackie was a great day and he loved every minute and has now done his first munro as well. Left early and started walk around 9-30 and told him there is no rush we are here to enjoy the whole day and at the end there is a very cold beer waiting for us at the mullin!!! hotel. There was a bit of snow still about but it is a straight forward mountain with stunning views so made the day so worthwhile and that beer was most welcome.

My spelling is normally good and i usually double check sorry if this upsets anyone but you just need to let me know there is no reason to use capitol letters obviously it does let me down now and again i do not mind people letting me know. There are reasons why it lets me down..... :(

Hi no not offended my spelling at times can be poor i normally check and double check but never saw that obvious mistake. I tend not to wright long story's because well my grammar is not great but enjoy this sight so thought would give it a go. I normally always check but that one slipped through. I do prefer people to let me know so i am able to correct it straight away.
All the best and thanks for saying it was good report that does mean a lot.
