Looks like you guys had a lot of fun-seems to be the case when you do these long treks :D

Great hills these. Did them in about three lots of three or something but this route definitely needs to be on our agenda. Fantastic effort though, never occurred to me to do all of them in a day. What makes them 'foxy'?

You guys are something else ! Some walk.

I spread these over 4 days with some weeks between. Sgurr Breac and its neighbour ended as just Sgurr Breac due to the full on winter conditions. First time in a long time I recall putting on all my clothes at the start, balaclava and mitts and none of it came off all day.

The walk in to that first one is a bugger in the latter stages isn't it. I did it in the reverse direction and took me 5 hrs to walk out from the Bealach (5 miles !!) heavy snow, to be greeted by a call from the police at the car (Torrandhu Bridge) as wifey was concerned....she loves me ! The date firmly etched in memory 23rd March 2011...best check that now in case I've made an arse of myself :lol:
