What a great day it was, Mark, and quite a bit warmer than any of us expected, I think. It was great to meet you and your companions. I humbly accept that your team beat the English to the top and planted your flag just before we arrived :D .

Nice one MARC (correct spelling) :lol: You certainly know all the hills, I have umpteen photo's and haven't a clue what the hill names are :(

You should have trekked across to Creach Bheinn, the views were just as good and if you like the sea and islands, even better :wink:

Cheers young fella.

Looking to solo Sgulaird this coming weekend (2nd May) so this give me a great idea of how things are up there at the moment. I'm expecting much more snow than you had though due to the recent cold snap, but can't wait until I'm amongst the monutains again !!

Fantastic pics as always, and I enjoy reading your reports. Keep them coming !! :clap:
