Nice one Quoman. Aye the snow doesn't half sap the energy, i was out in Glen Coe yesterday doing two Grahams and suffered coming off the second one with bad cramp on both legs. The only thing i can put it down to is the snow. :?

Sounded a hard day - so much easier covering this group in summer but then you don't get the snow or views such as those you got - looked a good day nonetheless, well done - cheers :)
