Epic walk, must have been a great day.

Like others I suspect there is no way my legs would allow me do something like this, took me three days to do all these. You should feel proud with that achievement. :)

yeah was lonely most of the walk, did find that i was talking to myself now and again :lol
my friend james was supposed to be coming along but cancelled the night before,
would have loved to have taken the dog, he loves it up in the hill but hes still a pup, 2 munros max for him 8)

Well done, can vouch for how much effort is required as did these today, did it the other way round (starting with Ben More) as easier to incentivise ourselves to finish as all the big climbs out of the way early on. Glorious sunny day, nice cooling breeze, took 12 hours, report to follow hopefully!
