I had absolutely no views up or down, it rained continually all the way and I got back to the car completely soaked to the skin and had to strip off completely to dry off. I sat in the car and felt so much better than when I had set off. I think there are some days when you need those sort of conditions to take your mind off things. Thank you Fionn Bheinn.

Couldn't agree more. Always does me good to get out whatever the weather. I'm sure quite a few people could understand that sentiment
