Nice one LS :D :D

I had a fantastic day on the R of S but I do remember the final descent and walk back being a bit endless :( :(

Hope you're suitably rested and up for another thrashing at Songpop :lol: :lol: :lol:

thanks to all for the kind words :) . But, as I always feel, these reports are just a vehicle for the wonderful ever-changing land we get to experience. I only hope to capture a small part of it :) .

Good stuff. I'm with you on the ridge, it's a cracking walk but not much hands used :D

Fantastic Dougie! Love the photo looking back to the ridge :D Long time since I last did that route but one of my favourites. As for the knees, keep taking the tablets. Works for me :lol:

Nice one from me too Dougie ! :D The Ring of Steall certainly is a great round (like you I was hoping for more hands on, but a superb walk still at that. A spot of winter maybe changes the experience significantly). Great shot back down into upper Glen Nevis :D :D :clap:
