Well folks got my early crimbo present from Pigeon ...Salamon walking boots and a pair of micro spikes so
there was no excuse (s) now.
We decided to do Ben ledi me and 8 other daftys ,
Pigeon, Huckfinn , Clippers, Frigate and his wife Senga and her friend Irene, Jim and his daughter Erin.

We set of just after 9 in the morning and reached the top 2 hrs and some mins later.
Views from the top were amazing as the weather was fantastic..clear , no wind and we could see all the Munro's
that i would need to do LOL
It was a great walk and has got me hooked again to do some more hills.
With the right walking gear it does make a difference and so much enjoyable too.
So if the weather is ok for the 16th it will be Ben Chonzie which will be my 3rd munro...canna wait..
