Hello,
Had my first meeting with some folks from the Walk Highlands 'site' on A'Mharconaich who were on the same journey as myself. They were an extremely cheerful bunch but they must have thought that I was inadequately dressed to be up above the snow line in the squally conditions on the day. In fact they made me wear some of their spare clothing....I'm sure that they will have at least an image of this. I write this as a prompt to them to produce some sort of report on what was a hilarious day out in the hills rescueing ill equipped travellers from the cold! :lol:
I have one image on my own camera of the day..... taken prior to meeting up with them!

:lol:

It was a cracking day! Good to meet you on the hill gaffr. A great day was had by all :D

5 of us (via the Caberfeidh Munro Baggers) had already planned a jaunt round the Drumochter 4 - as we stood on the 2nd summit (A' Mharconaich) an approaching figure appeared....greeted (or was that attacked :lol: ) by Breagha (SiBorgs dog)

Hellos and "real" names were exchanged.

It was dire up there and we all cracked on to the next summit - here we'd find out who each other really was!

I'm in the middle of a report- it'll be posted in a little while
