Cheers Andy, that would be smashing if you could add in more photos because mine are rubbish!!! Can't believe RR hasn't been moaning about me chopping him out of the first one :crazy: Thanks for the loan of the Haglofs top but not the Haglofs bottom :lol:

Hello Canadian Chris!!!
I must confess to being lazy and let others do the reports- shame on me!! :oops:

Thanks RR, I'm glad you didn't bother with your precious tops, we need you and Charlie there to make sure we get round safely. Apologies for cutting you out of the first pic- my photography skills are nearly as good as my culinary skills- which is why you're doing all the cooking on Skye- I'll pour the drinks!!! :lol:

Hope to read another report of yours before your sabbatical from hill walking. Great effort in dreich conditions :thumbup:


Cheers LS, hope this report helped. You will really enjoy this walk, no big slog and once the boulders are dealt with you can really enjoy the views or even better, the company :clap:
Mountainlove wrote:Brilliant report Polly, had me smiling :D Food orgy up the hills...that selection sounded delicious- yummy!! :D
Good effort to walk in the rain...but where is summer gone too?? :(


Howdy Doody ML! Yes you can't beat the lovely Scottish summer weather- you never know what you're going to get next!!! A bit like our food frenzy!!! The food choices are now getting increasingly competitive. Before we used to eye up new bits of kit, now its checking to see if the nuts are organic and from Waitrose and not run of the mill M&S ones!!! :lol:

lomondwalkers wrote:Looks like another cracking day out for the MWSPC despite the crappy weather 8) Not so sure about the dodgy song choices though!!! :lol:


Cheers Dave we had a super de dooper time!!! But you leave my song choices alone- ye cannae beat a bit of Alfie!!! :lol:

Love the photo of Usain Bolt :lol:


Oh that would be Gammy, he likes to keep us under control, Jonny tried it once but as you can see he's given to the madness too!! :crazy:

Glad to be of help OD, definitely go in a group- more fun that way! Can't believe its nearly 3 months since I last saw you at the Green Welly :shock:

Blooming heck of course you could!! We'd be honoured having photographic royalty like yourself with us :thumbup: :thumbup:

You'll certainly have to try the first one again in the dry!
Anyone else spot the innuendo bingo hidden in this report? No? Just me? LOL


Couldn't agree with you more, I'll be making a point of heading back up there :D

Hidden innuendo? Couldn't get my tongue, oops I mean my head round that one :wink:

laconic surf wrote:P.S In that first photo have you guys been sponsored by Berghaus Waterproof Trousers? :lol:


Well spotted LS, we are all in Berghaus Deluge trousers, mine being that wee bit different because my deluge was on the inside!! :crazy:

monty wrote:Excellent tale young lady. (Where have you been hiding?).
Another mini WH meet up. Looks like fun although the weather was dreicht. Big round so well done all. :D


Thanks gorgeous. I've been lurking in the Walks Blog section. Its safe in there!!! :shh:

PeteR wrote:It certainly seems a riot with all of you when you get out on the hills.

Hellooooo!
You're right Pete, it is a riot, coupled with a group therapy session, everything and anything gets discussed- excellent bunch of people, oops and dog!

So glad you had good weather on M&D- really gorgeous hills :D

Jock McJock wrote:Alexandra Hotel for Peroni and fish and chips??????? :shock: :shock: :shock: What about Dalmunzie for cheap lager, plate of crisps and, well, those views???!! Very disapointed!! :( :( Glad I wasn't there, the shame of it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well done folks, really wish I had been up to making this one. Hopefully on the mend and will be back to the MWSP club soon. Andy, get yer finger oot and get the pics on ya steamer! :lol: :lol: Oh and great report Polly, :clap: :clap: loved it......BUT.....what happened to song titles (or tittles as Jonny likes to call them :lol: ) for walk reports? Pfffft, standards are slipping. Jonny, sort her out eh? :lol: :lol:


MMMMMMMM you were missed- super mega big time!!! Don't worry you were much quoted and pretty much blamed for a lot of the occurences at Dalmunzie!!! Yes it was a possible venue for refreshments but would have meant Ron wouldn't be able to join us for a drink. And we knew you would go mental if we went back without you!!! I did have a song for my tittle but I wasn't brave enough to take the pelters!!! ( :shh: its in the first line of the text :shh: )
