Just for you mrssanta, it's been added to the report :D

Thank you I am touched by your kindness.
I like to open the map in one tab and read the report in another and follow it on the map.
Know what you mean about the butterflies starting about Loch Lomond. Just 6 weeks till we go to Skye!!! can't wait

Wonderful views, beautifully captured! :thumbup:

You're right, it's a stunning part of the country - the world even - and we're so privileged to live near enough to walk there. :D

Nice indeed

Soulminer did indeed do this for his 200th and our day was summed up by his summit glare out at everything

From way back then ......soulminer(Dave)

So good to see this superb report :D - missed it before, I was on the AE that day! I too had Fhada to myself when I was there on a day of immaculate conditions last year.

This great mountain doesn't seem to be visited as much as perhaps expected given its marvellous qualities. Perhaps we should keep the secret, shhhhhh! :) I'm still trying to decide if that was my best ever day on the hill. Certainly my best outing for photos, with this my outright favourite to date

Good to see you took a non-standard route back down, a chance to see a little-visited area of the mountain and explore a bit. I went west and along the Sgurr a Choire Ghairbh ridge and can highly recommend it.

I hope some of the crew get up this mountain on the coming weekend jaunt. Of course, being a WH meet that'll mean you'll see nothing since it will be p*****g down! :lol: Only joking, hope you get great weather and wish I could be there. But some of you guys please get up this mountain and let's see some more photos!
