Found that a gripping read - great way to claim your century with the oatcakes. A bit scary about the navigation but you kept your wits about you and got it sorted. :wink:

But we know which is right, I've used mine on occasion to confirm against GPS, as I trust the compass above all else.
Great walk, report and pics, shame about the clag, best wishes for the next milestone :D

Thanks spiderwebb! Compass is best! Where are those hills again that make your compass go haywire? Just so I know when to trust something else. :lol:
The next milestone is not that far off, closely followed by number 150. I quite like all these little celebrations!

Thanks dogplodder! I celebrated with peanut butter on oatcakes. Apart from its silencing properties :lol: , it’s an excellent combo, taste and fuel wise.
