Hi All,

Finally bagged my first Munro while on a weekend break to Loch Rannoch. The climb was made even more special as I went up with Emma for what is also her first Munro and proposed to her at the top. Delighted to say she said Yes.

The Weather was very changeable but we were both rewarded with beautiful views. This was a great choice for our first Munro and I certainly have the bug now for more hill-walking and climbing. I think Emma enjoyed herself too so we intend to do more together. :D

Good to see you smiling on the way up, bet you were smiling even more on the way down after your proposal was accepted. :)
