For Mark and Daniel Smith's last munro a group of friends, family and Scottish Hillwalking Meetup Group folk gathered in Glen Lyon. The fog cleared through Killin, and a few Kwells tablets and a couple of stops on the mad drive from Glasgow, and we were ready

It was spectacularly beautiful.
Loch an Diamh was frozen right across

Josh soon headed to the front out of the way of pesky parents, and as expected Daniel soon caught us all up having already bagged Stuchd an Lochan.
At the half way stop, a good chance for an illicit clamber up the rocks :crazy:

and a bit of food

We enjoyed seeing the incredible ice feathers

Achievement awards all round, including Finlay who was just 4 years old, all the amazing Smith supporters including Daniel's gran and mum, for some folk their first ever munro
The views were stunning

An amazing end to Mark and Daniel's odyssey and just the beginning of one for some others

Great stuff and good effort everyone. Some young looking Munro baggers there that could take young Daniels title off him :D
