Great stuff, that's quite some walk. :clap:
Not sure if my legs would still make that one, it's 22yrs (on Tuesday) since I did that circuit. Happy memories. :D
We were on Sail Mhor when you were doing your walk, it was a great day weather wise.
We had been on A'Mhaigdean a couple of days before you but were in cloud on the top so no views. :( still a good day though, went from Poolewe to Kinlochewe 8) a long day but not too much up and down.

Thinking about it, you might have been the weary, but happy looking, trio, we passed on our way into An Teallach. We started up the Shenavall path at 9.00ish on the Friday morning.

I've often wondered how many people we bump into in the hills and just have a quick "hiya" and not realize we may be fellow Walkhighlanders who we are in contact with on the site. Perhaps we should wear badges to identify ourselves, it gets embarrassing asking people if they use the site.

Paul/Helen, are there any badges available?

Fantastic Johnny :clap: :clap:

Having amazing walking companions makes all the difference to hitting the hills, doesn't it! More often than not its the banter that makes a good day out a fantastic one :thumbup: :thumbup:

That being said, comments about bums in shorts is NEVER appreciated!!! :lol: :lol:

I've made a bit of a foray into the Cuillins already and hopefully be taking a bit of a chunk out of them in September. Maybe see you there :D

A cracker of an effort 8) Punishing at times, but worth it :) A weight off your mind :) ,but a hell of a weight on your back :shock:
Not to dissimilar day to ours weather wise. My memory of the hardest part was the long grassy pull up A'Mhaighdean,but had another walker in front as a target, got him :lol:
Cheers.

well done to you all, looked like you got a good day for the round. i think doing it in one day is the best option and the bothy is an ideal base, i scrambled over the pinnicles of an teallach on the walk out though johnny ! dont think jimmy would have managed them with that pack.
