A lovely walk isn't it! Valerie and I were up there too in July and were treated to a great day :D :D :D
Ritchie missed out on this one as he stayed at home...while we scrambled around Skye and Kintail.
Magic stuff, well done! :D

I'm so glad. It depends what the others said about it but think I'd have been gutted to have missed it - and I'd never have got such a good opportunity again! :D

It wasn't that "bad" and between us we found 4 ways of doing it! :lol:
