Nice one Gammy :thumbup:

Looks like we could have had an unofficial WH meet-up! I was that way too but was on my bike by 7:30 (doing Derry Cairngorm via Glen Derry). I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for steamed up cars now :lol:

Glad to see that you managed to get JB out for a stroll. I have fond memories of this exact walk - it was my only 3rd hill. Nice to see the scenery again through your non-edited pics! :lol:

Nice one Willie. Your picks are great. If the clag's out on Sunday it will official be the fault of Stretch. He must have rubbed the clag curse on me back in October! :lol:

When we were on our way back there was still a few people heading up Glen Lui on bikes around about 2-2.30pm,we thought it was a wee shade late for any serious climbs that late in the day,also the weather was really starting to close in behind us on our walk back out.
