hadn't really thought about it - looking at my map, the AE looks obvious but I'm keeping that for a good weather day and will need experienced company for it so may be some time awaydooterbang wrote:Loking forward to the report containing your 200th Munro...got one in mind?
just a point and shoot compact these days Chris, nothing like your photos ! the weather makes all the differenceChrisW wrote: pin sharp photos of the stunning scenery.

Thanks - looking at the timings of my photos, I'd have been on the two summits at around 0830 and 0930 - hope you had a great day as well - cheersJonetCol wrote: I was up on the ridge on Sat 11 Aug - doing 1st four from E to W - and might have seen you between AaC and MCd.

Thanks - I suspect the malt may have had an influence I do have the AE two on my to do list but don't want to go solo so will need to see - it'll be quite a while before I can get back out anyway due to family commitments - nice to hear from you - cheerspigeon wrote:Been away for a couple of weeks so just seen this RH.Another whopper of a hike,i drank 4 litres on the south shiel ridge alone(half bottle of malt and numerous beers the night before might have had something to do with that right enough )Well done and don't be afraid of the AE ridge,would be a fine way of getting to 200

If I'd been there a bit later I'd have bumped into you on the Saddle summit.

I was hoping for all of that (inversions; brocken spectre; glorious weather; etc) over in Glen Affric last weekend...all I got was immersion and broken specs when I came off the bike at a ford in spate!
Shall be referring back to your report in the future when come to do these, great stuff.
