Some great photos there. I was worried you'd left Ritchie behind so was pleased to see him there at the summit! :D

Ah, great photos of these two :D Remember them well. My first "proper" winter walk. Always struck me as a little forgotten, but they make a god days walk from what I remember. Good to see them bathed in a bit more sun than I had :D Could be a route to return too I think :D

Well described great day out - with somememorable photographs, especially the first. I've had some superb early morning views across Loch Tulla, it seems to lend itself to those "mood" shots and the clouds seem to just know what to do and where to sit.

Oh no dogplodder, Ritchie would definitely have been most unhappy if we had left him out of this one. He's just 5 munros away now from his 100, so he's eager to get there and loving the hills as much as ever :wink: :D :D

Great stuff Bod, Val and Ritchie. Especially love the shots back to Beinn Chreachain with Loch Lyon in the background. Certainly was a better day for you than I got a week later on the other side of the road. :lol:
