With the potential for a high number of reports, for this weekend's "meet", I've decided to keep the report on this one short......

Over 2 points that stood in our way,
10 started out on a Walkhighlands day.

The weather was good, it was fair, it was grim,
There were certainly times this hill could've been binned.

Upwards and downwards we (un)steadily climbed,
Weakening of body, question - "strengthening of mind?"

But finally, out of the hail and the dark,
We all reached the summit, of Beinn Sguliard.
