Well done, only 19 more Grahams and 9 more Donalds and you can call yourself a quadruple compleater! :clap: Then it’s just a few more sub 2000’s. :wink:

Well done on reaching 200. I still have several of these to do. As I don't use a bike, I get the feeling these will be long walks.

It was my plan to do the sub as well, headed down the path to cross the river above the clomach falls and saw the height of the water was waist deep.

Good stuff indeed. Well done on the 200.
I found carnan cruithneachd (one of my very few Grahams to date) a really tough wee hill, had similar views when I was up to those you got :roll:
