Bloody hell, looks like there was an unofficial meet in the Strathcarron area :shock: .

Great report - looks like you're going to have covered most of the Munros doing long days, alternative routes and wild camps :) . Something that Davetherave and Jools looked like they would manage a few years ago, but they seem to have tailed off...

In all the time it took you two to polish this lot off, I managed a measly wee Sub2K near Aviemore. I feel woefully inadequate! :lol:
