Lovely. I did the first one in the snow and had to turn back. Looking forward to getting back up. Like you Kintail is one of my fav places.

'twas a fine day indeed.

After a late arrival my day began chasing after a pink dot and a red dot up the hillside. :lol:
A fine pair of hills in fine company to take me up to 80. Nice way to kick off the meet in what was probably the best weather of the weekend.
