well done all :thumbup: here's hoping they keep it up - once my two got past early teens it was no longer "cool" and they didn't really want to go hill walking with me any more :( - cheers :)

Great report Martin! and great pics. The two times I've been up Schiehallion, it's been in winter and in a blizzard. It looks almost tame now!

Thanks for sharing the remainder of the sour worms on the Brothers the next day. :D

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has commented on our report.
Everyone has been very kind with their words of support and congratulations.

Not sure when the next one will be, but there will definitely be more.
Days like these are well worth the effort; maybe next time, the heard of Mountain Goats (WH Juniors) will be a little bigger. :)
