One of the main reasons for going to Inchnadamph was to walk Quinaig and knowing Mountain Thyme had already done this walk i knew i'd get peace to enjoy it. All i kept hearing was it only takes 4hrs 45 mins to do, to which i replied aye but what did you see when you done it which was met by silience. For once i'd shut MT up. Now to the report which will be short as Basscadet has already done a superb report of the day. I set off with Wacky Jacky again along with Charlie " Trecker 53" and Basscadet and her fella Leithy. We were the last party to set off with three other groups away ahead of us. The third group was Scoob and his Motley Crew who were doing more larking about than walking but having a great time into the bargain. We soon caught up with this mob on our way to the second summit even though we were taking our time and having lots of stops on the way. We then joined them for the remainder of the walk. We were out for 7 hrs, one of the best 7 hrs spent on the hills. A brilliant day, again in great company.

It was a cracking day out - probably my favourite of the year so far - and great to meet you in person after reading your reports for so long :) .

Im glad there were lots of folk to guide you since i wasnt there. i was worried about you venturing out on your own :(

Youre slowing down a bit JC . Nearly 8 hours, although you recorded it as 1 hour! But you are getting on a bit :wink:
