Fantastic photos as always! Great report gets the old thumbs up from me. This is my current burning ambition, to climb Buachaille Etive Mor this year. I'm too chicken to climb it in snow, so It'll have to be a little later in the year, and due to my relative inexperience, I'll have to have someone with me. I just hope my pictures do it the justice yours have. Fantastic, just fantastic. Well done! :D :D

The photo with the tiny climber is immense. Really enjoyed your report - I tend to a 'Woohoo' if I top out with some sunshine - happens about 3 times a year. One of the best WOTM contenders I've seen on here.

Haven't been on WH for a while, due to a nasty chest bug that won't b****r off. Reading everyones reports and looking at their fantastic photos, while being unable to walk 10 feet without wheezing is making me green with envy :mrgreen: (that's me ... except I'm a Miss) However, risked coming on here today and was pleased to see a 'Frogwell' report. That will cheer me up I thought!! But it was all seeming a bit tame and a tad despondent ... until I reached this gem ...

Thankyou FW, you never cease to make me lol.
Mr Chubby's a bit of a looker :shock:

Oh, and your photos are ok I guess :sick: :sick: ... as usual 8)

I've just posted this TR on my FB page to show all my friends what it is I love so much about walking in Scotland. Thank you for doing a better job of showing it better than I've been able to. Stunning.
