Sitting on the summit of Carn Mor Dearg having a celebratory cup of tea we reminisced about some of the hills we had done together. Her first Munro, Ben Na Lap, which we did in a ferocious wind, our expedition to the Fisherfield Six (I don’t care, there will always be 6 in my book!), long walks up Glen Tilt, river crossings, blizzards, sun burn, horrendous midges in Glen Affric, cheese sandwiches (we always eat cheese sandwiches!) and wild camping, not forgetting (how could you?) Torridon, Kintail and Skye. I have had a brilliant time.
I’m not going to bore everyone with a route description except to say that if you use the bridge to cross the Allt a’Mhuillin just below the dam you won’t stub your toe very painfully on a rock crossing higher up. But here a few photos to mark the occasion.

I was going to say are you sure it was just tea in the flask.
Well done on your completion. Did you do them all save Buachaille Etive Mor in the past 8 years?
