I'm hoping it's totally frozen over with a good, solid covering of snow!

Thanks - I will. I'm going clockwise as I don't want a long complicated glen walk in the dark at the end so I'm coming down over A' Chailleach.

Aye we did it clockwise - I would imagine frozen would be marvelous - some of those bogs are pretty deep. You are right, coming over between the second and third hill is a real pain.
