Well what a great day we had here in Glencoe and climb up to Stob Dubh (Buachaille Etive Beag) we parked up from the cairn and started our day there were four of us myself my mate Jim and his kids nicknames will be used on here :D Bungle :D who always amazes me and the goat :D who seems to have the mountains in his blood. I see on here that there are lots of reports so not to bore you i will just post some photos of what was a great day. We had sun then snow then rain and it never dampened our spirits one bit. The ridge looked fantastic and the two young ones took it in there stride :lol:. As you know if you have read my Blog or whatever you call it i am not the best at this but i hope you enjoy the photos.
