Wee report about a wee Munro,OK so my time is not Monty-esque,but even I was surprised how quick I managed this one,Been 4 weeks now since the fail on the Fisherfield 6...........................Oh wait a second make that the the Fisherfield 5,here is my summit shot on what I thought was Munro No 123 on that day

Stob Ban Munro no 123 for me
,not the most flattering picture you"ll agree,but considering how bad I felt I was chuffed I had got this far before bailing out and 123 did have a nice ring to it.So when the SMC in all there wisdom demoted Beinn a" Chlaidheimh to say I was miffed was puting it mildly :roll: all that effort for what,stunning views,no doubt,but what about my BLUE BALLOON,one second its there,next second its gone,zilch,caput,hee-haw there :wtf: .kinda made me lose my mojo the last 3/4 weeks,so time to get it back,ok so its not the most exciting hill you"ll ever climb,but it did the trick,here are the pictures,

Mmm - see what you mean ref the balloons. But perhaps you should be grateful it's not 1997 when the SMC added 8 more Munros (and took one away). I know folks who had to go back and do Angel's Peak and Sgurr na Carnach because they had just been tops until then. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Aside from getting to 123 again, the other good news is that Alan didn't lose his GPS and you didn't try to swim through any of those streams :lol: :lol:

All is well now, back on your game ya big galloot.
