PeteR wrote: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


Cheers PeteR :D Yeah was a shame but Stob Ban just looked so much more exposed to the wind than the first one and it was mental enough on there, so the sensible head said leave it. And like you say its an excuse to go back and do it all again. Maybe on a better day though :lol: :lol:

Nice one Mark! It's always great to be out there no matter how many summits you make? Look after that knee now and keep on mending. Hope to catch up soon :wink: :D :D

cheers Scooby. The knee was good. Few wee twinges but no pain which was great. Been resting it (no big walks, mountains etc) for a few months and that seems to have helped, so fingers crossed :)

Cheers Bod. Yeah you're right it was just great being out and about. Did the Glen Loin circuit the previous week to see how I'd go, first big walk in 4 months, and it was magic being out. I'll be taking it easy and hopefully it won't give me anymore problems :D
