I'll mark your route (at the start) as one to avoid for when I do these two :wink:

Cracking report Mark McMark :clap:

I will happily take the blame for this alternative route :lol: It meant that we got up onto the ridge on a faster, more direct, more scenic and less boggy path- so there! I was only thinking about your special needs!! :angel: :angel:


As for you being slow.....I was happy to sit and wait, I was in no rush to become corrie fodder :crazy: :crazy:

Thanks for having the same determination as me and getting out despite the weather forecast. Apart from the wind, I'm sure you'll agree it was pretty good walking weather-well what I could see of it anyway!!!!

Cheers for the beer and chips at the Clachaig- fantastic :thumbup: :thumbup:

PS I told you I had talents other than playing darts!!!!

Apart from the detour on the nice track the route up turned out to be great. That wee walk up through the forest is lovely Fudgie, much better than going up the usual way. Although under normal circumstances you would be descending from Mullach Nan Coirean so can't see many folk doing it this way anyway. But if you do, its the way to go :D

Guys sounds like you had a great time. Gutted i missed out. But other people had plans for me :(
looks like polly seen all the scenery. With her cap down over her eyes :lol:
Did you have to keep booting her up the ass mark to get her going the right way. Or just dangle some food from a fishing rod. In front off her. To make her go the right way :lol:

Very entertaining report :D Real shame you didn't get to do the two though, as Stob Ban is a cracker. One for you to return to though :D
