Nice one Helsbels :D New to this Munro malarky myself so know how you feel. Done Ben Lomond in December when it was a wee bit icy and thoroughly enjoyed it. Used to live down that way and always wanted to get up there and I finally did. Been out and about around the Arrochar Alps lately and I would recommend it as a good place to get into the swing of things. The hills round there have a wee bit of everything and I have learned a lot over the past couple of months; like not to stand on your sunglasses and make sure you have a change of clothes in the car in case you get soaked :lol: You think this Munro thing is really just some kind of illness and we're all just mad :? :lol:

Congratulations Helsbels.

You've actually achieved two significant "1st's".......

Not only your 1st Munro, but you're 1st Post on Walkhighlands.
I'm sure you'll find both become very addictive.
