Well done and good effort :clap: , i cycled in for these two and still found it a long day. We were lucky when we did these two as we met a guy who gave us a rough idea where the howf was and didn't have to search too much :D

Well done on getting to the ton fifty! :D :clap: :D

if you'd climbed Avon first and dropped off Bhuird from the south summit, it would have saved you quite a few klicks. :wink:

What happened to yer bike? Did the weans steal yer stabilisers? :lol:

Bhuird 1st then Avon for 150,we did think of the way you have said,but the path from the Sneck was too good to resist.

As for the bike,one of my mates cannie go a bike. :shock: :lol: :lol:

I've been meaning to add my own congratulations on here GLW for hitting the 150 :clap:

It's a good feeling and this is quite a circuit on which to reach that milestone, let alone mark a return into the hills.

Great effort :D
