You leave us in no doubt about what it means to all of you to be out in the mountains and it leaves us with a good feeling just to be able to share your joy through the photo's and the report.

Thanks for your great report and the lovely photographs. 'Breakfast in Diabaig' is a view I know so well. My dad was from the village and built a retirement home there. Sadly, he and my mam are no longer with us and the house has passed out of the family. However, almost every summer in the 70s and 80s I would be up there, sometimes on my own, getting up at 4am to go fishing to one of the hill lochs! We still have friends there and I go up when I can. My sister takes her boys up there too. Thank you again.

Great photos (and report) of a magnificent scenery! And how fantastic to have kids who seem to thoroughly enjoy being there! Hope the rest of your week brought equally great days out.
