Good to see you back :)

but seriously......well done all, esp you, gammy :thumbup: - personally I enjoyed the whole thing of getting on and off at Corrour and certainly want to go back but your route looks just as good and a wee bit more practical - that together with the excellent company and even some blue sky must've made it all the better for your comeback - will be looking out for you on the hills - cheers :)


Ta RH,if you go from Rannoch the corbett comes into play.
