Got the idea for the title from one of my favourite comedies, Father Ted and it was quite appropriate i would being doing this walk with Jimmy and Mo. Jimmy was to be Father "Jimmy" Jack, drink! drink! drink! and Mo was Mrs "Mo" Doyle, go on! go on! go on! go on! We started from Kilfinnan where a path leads up the hill. It disappears as you cross over the level ground at the Lochan but starts again at the ridge and leads to the summit. We returned the same way.

But JC, are you Ted "the money was just resting in my account" or Dougal when he does a funeral? :lol:

As Ted is my nickname at work i'd have to be Father Ted though some would say i'm more like Dougal :lol:
