Inji was moving well while all the time she was constantly talking as if she had been in the mountains for years! We knew it wouldn't last but we did admire her enthusiasm.
It was a bit overcast at the summit but as we got closer the cloud did thin out and eventually clear.By this time Inji was ready for her lunch and was starting to weary but like all parents we were telling her it wasn't far to go now!
We finally got to the summit but once again we were eaten alive by midges!A couple of quick pics were taken then a rescue helicopter from HMS Gannet flew past with big waves from the crew . ( they must have recognised us as we are from Prestwick as well!)
We finally headed down for some lunch away from the midges.Inji spoke to her Gran,ate like a horse then went to the loo for the umpteenth time! After that she was ready to go once again.
After a couple of more wee breaks we finally got back to the car park where we quickly got ready to leave as the midges were there again! We all had a great day and hopefully we have many more like it.The last picture says it all!
