It sounds like you had a great day out, despite the "breeze" - and I hope it allowed you good memories of your mum. Take care of that finger, too, your need it to type your walk reports! :lol: I hope it's healing well. Cheers. 8)

It's the 3pm rule apparently. 3 pm and the sun comes out. Generally I'm off the summit and heading back to the car by then, so I take it to be the hills way of taking the p*** out of me :lol: :lol:

As soon as you mentioned you were heading for the hills in remembrance of your mum, I knew we could expect a first class account of your day on An Socach.

You did her and yourself proud - well done, I really enjoyed this.

Thanks Polly. My mum wasn't a walker herself - but she was like all mums though and worried about her (middle aged) child out alone in some wild place :lol: :lol: I always did my best to put her mind at rest by telling her just how wild some of the places were :lol: :lol:
