Hi all

Was out yesterday with fellow member on here Jim Ramsay we set out to do Ben Challum Jim was feeling very ill and had to turn back halfway while myself bit the bullet and headed up for my 47th Munro i eventually made the top what a great day it was i told Jim after i returned that he had no chance of making it as it was a bit too long and steep in places

Here are some of my images as always comments welcome

Regards

Peter

Great photos as usual Peter, thanks for showing me what I missed!

Any sign of the 2 lads we met who were coming down and we chatted to for ages??
