Great report - got this planned for 1st of June to kick off a 10 day odyssey into the far north (oh dear I've just thought - I'll be up in the Fannichs for the Queen's Jubillee and miss all the celebrations :D )

A very enjoyable report :thumbup: Stick to May though, you just chose the wrong year. I did Klibreck and Ben Hope beginning of May 2008 and the weather was superb. Did a walk report for Klibreck but not Hope :D
