Thanks MM,

You do have the slight disadvantage of being a wee further away from the hills than most!!!

Don't worry if you manage up to the Kintail meet your tally will soon rattle upwards :lol:

Yet another great report Polly. And congratulations on hitting the 50 mark :D A pity the clag descended for part of your day :( but at least you got the circuit under your belt :D And great you had your husband there to celebrate your achievement with you :D

No pressure, but we're all looking forward to your reports of the next 233 (or 232 by the time the table is updated) :D

I'm only 3/4 through this group. Bailed on Cairn Mairg early on in my walking career just as the wind, rain and mist decided to give me a pasting :( and I was worried about getting lost :lol: I now have these pencilled in for a crisp winters day in the snow :D

:lol: :lol: :lol: Thanks Polly. I've still to post a general note on the October walk report post, but I've got to say "walk report of the month" wasn't the first thing on my mind as I realised I was the best part up a mountain and the path I thought I was on had somehow disappeared in the darkness and I still needed to get myself down :lol: :(

MrsR is a star though, as she accepts my obsession for hillwalking with no (well, little :lol: ) complaint. Not being able to text her to let her know everything was under control, but I might be late, was the worst bit of the whole experience. I think I'm forgiven now though :D
