The fine summer broke down in July - which is probably why so many of you are on the website and not out there doing walks! Visitors to Walkhighlands reached 120,731 - another record - and viewed 1.9 million pages!

Trip report of the month was another toughie. Should it be kevsbald for his report on Creise? Kinley's trip on the CMD arete? One of IainG's stravaigers in Angus? Munrowalker's Lochnagar round? Or Papagenos musings on his ascent of Gulvain - perhaps compensation for the clegs? One of Doogz bagging epics around Strathfarrar or Mullardoch? Great reports from Skye by olddanensian or monty? Michelle's short jaunt round the Brecklet trail? Graham Dewar for going over Buachaille Etive Mor in the snow?

It could have been, but in the end the prize goes to mountain coward for an excellent report on Sgurr na Ciche and its neighbours. Well done to MC - and £40 of TISO vouchers on their way.

Don't forget to keep submitting those reports to win TISO gear - quite a few in for August already!!
