Great effort on a dour day, you still managed to get some nice photos and tell a good tale along the way. Great to see people enjoying the hills even if the weather is not playing ball :D

Congratulations Ritchie! :clap: Well done on your 50th Munro!

It looks like it was quite a windy day, Bod! It shows more in the way you and Val are leaning into it than anything else! But despite the wind it is clear you are all enjoying the experience - especially Ritchie, of course! :lol:
