Despite the brevity of your report, I detect the quiet satisfaction of a great day in the Harris Hills - you lucky so-and -so!

It says 18.5 miles/29.8km. Unfortunately there are so many waypoints that it isn't telling me the height gained - seems to be a problem sometimes. Are you using a GPS to log the route now? Whatever happened to just guessing where to go next?

Aye Malky, there were c.400 waypoints, so it started playing up & I saved it before I lost it - noo edited to show the last 0.8 miles before I finally got a lift tae pick up ma other rucksack & thence on tae Tarbert, thus saving ma another 8 miles or so...

Can't believe you are seriously suggesting that I'd use a GPS?! :shock:

Apologies - it's obviously your usual fastidious attention to detail that has generated that many waypoints :wink: . My computer/internet connection/whatever it is can't handle more than about 250 points without slowing right down to a crawl, so I rarely draw such an accurate route.

1979m from what it says here.... Worth trying Chrome browser if you use the GPS Planner alot, it handles points more easily.
