This was to be the biggest challenge of my hillwalking life and after a rubbish nights sleep with the midges and humid temperatures(around 3 hours) it was gona make this day so much harder :shock: Myself Stevie and Dave started walking at 6am in dreich conditions it wasn't a good start weather wise.

It took us around 2 hours to get the first summit and the clag was starting to lift and was looking like the weather might change for the better :)

The views came and went for the first 6 hours and we were making good time and before we knew it we were passed halfway

After our seventh summit of the day the legs were starting to tire but I thought i'd be struggling a lot more than what i was. I had a wee bit energy gel and a biscuit to boost me to the last munro and as the going was goo and ascents fairly gentle we were on the final summit of the day, what a feeling YYAAAAAAAASSS!!!!! Truly epic day in fantastic hills and braw company that i'll never forget :D :D
