BP, with your sort of allergy, I would have thrown reserve to the winds and lurked in the car-park until I could borrow some sun screen. Hideously embarrassing, I know, and husband would have walked in silence most of the day, but better than the alternative. Living at the southern end of the Munros as we do, it's hard to think of things that are only a couple of hours from us as needing an overnighter. Wonder where the best place to live is if you need a round.

You're welcome :D :D

Always nice to know that my stories help other people enjoy the mountains. This ridge is a gem and I'd love to return and do it again.

Sadly, we are off the radar for a few weeks, Kevin has painfully injured his back and though he's improving, I don't want to risk anything too straining before he's fully recovered.
