Damn I feel your pain Gammy, so sorry to see an injury like that. I know what it's like to be out injured :roll: great photos of an otherwise great day but that ankle kind of kills it :(

While you are off you will have to work on your Usain Bolt summit celebration....

But don't put your bloody back out trying it :lol: :lol:

Great pics Wullie, I'm hating missing all these hills you lot are bagging. Hope the ankle sorts itself out soon mate. Think we should arrange a WH meet for those of us who are out of action. Seems to be a few around just now. We could just meet in the pub, compare injuries and get plastered! :lol: :lol:

Excellent pics. Kiltedbiggles and I done the Laggan 3 a couple of years back. Headed up after work one Friday evening and hiked up to the bealach to camp for the night, only to find that Biggles had left his tent poles in the car! Ha ha, the numpty had to kip inside a collapsed tent that night.
