I could do a sponsored silence to help the coffers- don't I'd raise too much though!!! It's not been the same since Paul Hartley left! :(

Cheers for comments!

Well done Polly, another great day in the hills :thumbup:

Very impressive how you have done so many Munros in a relatively short space of time.
I'm not a hill bagger but plan on doing some Munros next year, watch out, i might start chasing you :shock:

Phew, when I saw the title I thought maybe you'd got hold of my rendition of said song on Saturday :lol: .

More entertainment as usual Polly - you must have a lot of free time for all this hillwalking ;).

An entertaining report once again Polly,shame about the dodgy weather though but suppose you can't complain really,it being mid November! 8)

Well done on getting Tarmachan in too,that's dedication/a slight case of madness after the bootfull of bog,the rate you're going it'll be the 100 Munro's for you by the time Kintail comes along in March. Be worth doing a revisit to Tarmachan to do the full ridge at some point(in good weather maybe?) did it in August & loved it.

AND as for the Macaroni cheese pie,let's just say that if they sold them down this way i'd be around 25 stone by now! :lol:

Oh is it on youtube??? Will you be entertaining us in Kintail? :D

Free time is due to me doing two 12 hour shifts at the weekend while you guys were carousing up in Arrochar :( :(

Thanks MM. Yes would love to go along the ridge but as you say, got to be good weather 8)

The macaroni pie was fab, it really did keep me going for hours. I'll be taking one with me again. Should I bring a boot full to Kintail??? :D

Cracker Polly !!! As a Hibs fan, that title caught my eye but your reports normally do anyway :lol:

I know the wee crux bit on the Tarmachan you mentioned, I went down it as a waterfall basically, never had to put my poles away right enough ! Felt sorry for the people who had came up that way while it was pouring down who must have got a soaking, I got lucky that the sun came out and brought the spirits up a bit after Traversing the whole ridge in clag and rain :lol:
