Well done Willlie, i had a big beaming smile when i saw your report, then felt so sad reading about your wife, hope she`s ok mate. But I had to laugh again when i saw you standing in "your" clag, and smiled some more when i saw that the clouds cleared for you and Alan. Excellent report Big Man :clap:

As I said on Saturday, congrats to you and Alan on reaching this landmark :) .It was some day when the morning clag cleared 8) . In the words of Annie Lennox "behind every great man, there had to be a great woman" and sounds like you've bagged yourself one :) .

Well done Gammy & Alan on reaching your 100th and yes, I've no doubt God was looking down on you both that day :D :D :D I had no idea how difficult things had been for you, Elizabeth & all the family and really hope she gets well again. She sounds like an amazing woman and I shall keep her in my prayers x

This is beautiful Gammy, I am genuinely moved by the quality of your words for Elizabeth, such a lady deserves better than the cards dealt to her, even though she has obviously risen to and met the challenges laid before her :cry: there isn't a man reading your report who doesn't envy you such a wonderful woman.

Your walk report is great, the pictures cracking and quite fitting that the summit clagged up just for a while :wink: congrats on the ton mate, it is a cracking achievement....but nowhere near as good as finding such a wonderful woman to keep you in line :D

What a great, from the heart report. I'm so sorry to hear what your wife has gone through, I hope better days lie ahead!

Congratulations to both you and Alan on the century, a damn fine way to see in treble figures and some top notch photos once your infamous clag cleared

Ok im now calling you "Jammy Leg Walker"...what stunning views :)

I'm so pleased that on your 100th Munro you could see more than 10M in every direction :lol:

Well done to yourself and Alan on hitting treble figures...the next 100 will come quickly.

I wasn't aware that your wife was battling cancer, i hope her recovery is speedy.

I've yet to visit Torridon but with this report i just have to hit the 200 mark when it comes.
